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 dissect_packet function in epan/packet.c in
Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.11 and 1.6.x before 1.6.5
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) via a long packet in a capture file,
as demonstrated by an airopeek file. (CVE-2012-0041)

- Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.11 and 1.6.x before 1.6.5
does not properly perform certain string conversions,
which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash)
via a crafted packet, related to epan/to_str.c.
(CVE-2012-0042)

- Buffer overflow in the reassemble_message function in
epan/dissectors/ packet-rlc.c in the RLC dissector in
Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.11 and 1.6.x before 1.6.5
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code
via a series of fragmented RLC packets. (CVE-2012-0043)

- Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.11 and 1.6.x before 1.6.5
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) via a long packet in a (1) Accellent
5Views (aka .5vw) file, (2) I4B trace file, or (3)
NETMON 2 capture file. (CVE-2012-0066)

- wiretap/iptrace.c in Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.11 and
1.6.x before 1.6.5 allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (application crash) via a long packet
in an AIX iptrace file. (CVE-2012-0067)

- The lanalyzer_read function in wiretap/lanalyzer.c in
Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.11 and 1.6.x before 1.6.5
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) via a Novell catpure file containing
a record that is too small. (CVE-2012-0068)
