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 sm_close_on_exec function in conf.c in sendmail
before 8.14.9 has arguments in the wrong order, and
consequently skips setting expected FD_CLOEXEC flags,
which allows local users to access unintended
high-numbered file descriptors via a custom
mail-delivery program. (CVE-2014-3956)
