software.

Description :

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

- The ieee802154_map_rec function in
epan/dissectors/packet-ieee802154.c in the IEEE 802.15.4
dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.11 and 1.10.x
before 1.10.3 uses an incorrect pointer chain, which
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) via a crafted packet.
(CVE-2013-6336)

- Unspecified vulnerability in the NBAP dissector in
Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.11 and 1.10.x before 1.10.3
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) via a crafted packet.
(CVE-2013-6337)

- The dissect_sip_common function in
epan/dissectors/packet-sip.c in the SIP dissector in
Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.11 and 1.10.x before 1.10.3
does not properly initialize a data structure, which
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) via a crafted packet.
(CVE-2013-6338)

- The dissect_openwire_type function in
epan/dissectors/packet-openwire.c in the OpenWire
dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.11 and 1.10.x
before 1.10.3 allows remote attackers to cause a denial
of service (loop) via a crafted packet. (CVE-2013-6339)

- epan/dissectors/packet-tcp.c in the TCP dissector in
Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.11 and 1.10.x before 1.10.3
does not properly determine the amount of remaining
data, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (application crash) via a crafted packet.
(CVE-2013-6340)
