Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : ssh (cve_2010_5107_denial_of)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


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 default configuration of OpenSSH through 6.1
enforces a fixed time limit between establishing a TCP
connection and completing a login, which makes it easier
for remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(connection-slot exhaustion) by periodically making many
new TCP connections. (CVE-2010-5107)

- The auth_parse_options function in auth-options.c in
sshd in OpenSSH before 5.7 provides debug messages
containing authorized_keys command options, which allows
remote authenticated users to obtain potentially
sensitive information by reading these messages, as
demonstrated by the shared user account required by
Gitolite. NOTE: this can cross privilege boundaries
because a user account may intentionally have no shell
or filesystem access, and therefore may have no
supported way to read an authorized_keys file in its own
home directory. (CVE-2012-0814)
