Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : wireshark (multiple_buffer_errors_vulnerabilities_in3)

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


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_log function in plugins/irda/packet-irda.c
in the IrDA dissector in Wireshark 1.10.x before 1.10.9
does not properly strip '\n' characters, which allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (buffer
underflow and application crash) via a crafted packet.
(CVE-2014-5161)

- The read_new_line function in wiretap/catapult_dct2000.c
in the Catapult DCT2000 dissector in Wireshark 1.10.x
before 1.10.9 does not properly strip '\ n' and '\r'
characters, which allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (off-by-one buffer underflow and
application crash) via a crafted packet. (CVE-2014-5162)

- The APN decode functionality in (1)
epan/dissectors/packet-gtp.c and (2) epan/
dissectors/packet-gsm_a_gm.c in the GTP and GSM
Management dissectors in Wireshark 1.10.x before 1.10.9
does not completely initialize a certain buffer, which
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) via a crafted packet.
(CVE-2014-5163)

- The rlc_decode_li function in
epan/dissectors/packet-rlc.c in the RLC dissector in
Wireshark 1.10.x before 1.10.9 initializes a certain
structure member only after this member is used, which
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) via a crafted packet.
(CVE-2014-5164)

- The dissect_ber_constrained_bitstring function in
epan/dissectors/packet-ber.c in the ASN.1 BER dissector
in Wireshark 1.10.x before 1.10.9 does not properly
validate padding values, which allows remote attackers
to cause a denial of service (buffer underflow and
application crash) via a crafted packet. (CVE-2014-5165)
