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 mod_dav_svn Apache HTTPD server module in Subversion
1.6.x through 1.6.20 and 1.7.0 through 1.7.8 allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL
pointer dereference and crash) via a PROPFIND request
for an activity URL. (CVE-2013-1849)

- The is_this_legal function in mod_dontdothat for Apache
Subversion 1.4.0 through 1.7.13 and 1.8.0 through 1.8.4
allows remote attackers to bypass intended access
restrictions and possibly cause a denial of service
(resource consumption) via a relative URL in a REPORT
request. (CVE-2013-4505)
