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

Synopsis :

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

Description :

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

- The proto_tree_add_item function in Wireshark 1.6.0
through 1.6.1 and 1.4.0 through 1.4.8, when the IKEv1
protocol dissector is used, allows user-assisted remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop)
via vectors involving a malformed IKE packet and many
items in a tree. (CVE-2011-3266)

- Untrusted search path vulnerability in Wireshark 1.4.x
before 1.4.9 and 1.6.x before 1.6.2 allows local users
to gain privileges via a Trojan horse Lua script in an
unspecified directory. (CVE-2011-3360)

- The dissect_infiniband_common function in
epan/dissectors/packet-infiniband.c in the Infiniband
dissector in Wireshark 1.4.0 through 1.4.9 and 1.6.x
before 1.6.3 allows remote attackers to cause a denial
of service (NULL pointer dereference and application
crash) via a malformed packet. (CVE-2011-4101)
