Synopsis :

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

- The vino_server_client_data_pending function in
vino-server.c in GNOME Vino 2.26.1, 2.32.1, 3.7.3, and
earlier, and 3.8 when encryption is disabled, does not
properly clear client data when an error causes the
connection to close during authentication, which allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite
loop, CPU and disk consumption) via multiple crafted
requests during authentication. (CVE-2013-5745)
