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_frame function in
epan/dissectors/packet-frame.c in the frame
metadissector in Wireshark 1.10.x before 1.10.8
interprets a negative integer as a length value even
though it was intended to represent an error condition,
which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (application crash) via a crafted packet.
