Synopsis :

The remote Solaris system is missing a security patch for third-party
software.

Description :

The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address
security updates :

- The sys_recvfrom function in nmbd in Samba 3.6.x before
3.6.24, 4.0.x before 4.0.19, and 4.1.x before 4.1.9
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(infinite loop and CPU consumption) via a malformed UDP
packet. (CVE-2014-0244)

- The push_ascii function in smbd in Samba 3.6.x before
3.6.24, 4.0.x before 4.0.19, and 4.1.x before 4.1.9
allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of
service (memory corruption and daemon crash) via an
attempt to read a Unicode pathname without specifying
use of Unicode, leading to a character-set conversion
failure that triggers an invalid pointer dereference.
(CVE-2014-3493)
