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 :

- Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.13 and 1.6.x before 1.6.8
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(infinite loop) via vectors related to the (1) ANSI MAP,
(2) ASF, (3) IEEE 802.11, (4) IEEE 802.3, and (5) LTP
dissectors. (CVE-2012-2392)

- epan/dissectors/packet-diameter.c in the DIAMETER
dissector in Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.13 and 1.6.x
before 1.6.8 does not properly construct certain array
data structures, which allows remote attackers to cause
a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted
packet that triggers incorrect memory allocation.
(CVE-2012-2393)

- Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.13 and 1.6.x before 1.6.8 on
the SPARC and Itanium platforms does not properly
perform data alignment for a certain structure member,
which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (application crash) via a (1) ICMP or (2) ICMPv6
Echo Request packet. (CVE-2012-2394)

- The PPP dissector in Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.14,
1.6.x before 1.6.9, and 1.8.x before 1.8.1 allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (invalid pointer
dereference and application crash) via a crafted packet,
as demonstrated by a usbmon dump. (CVE-2012-4048)

- epan/dissectors/packet-nfs.c in the NFS dissector in
Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.14, 1.6.x before 1.6.9, and
1.8.x before 1.8.1 allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (loop and CPU consumption) via a
crafted packet. (CVE-2012-4049)
