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 :

- Use-after-free vulnerability in the SDP dissector in
Wireshark 1.10.x before 1.10.10 allows remote attackers
to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a
crafted packet that leverages split memory ownership
between the SDP and RTP dissectors. (CVE-2014-6421)

- The SDP dissector in Wireshark 1.10.x before 1.10.10
creates duplicate hashtables for a media channel, which
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) via a crafted packet to the RTP
dissector. (CVE-2014-6422)

- The tvb_raw_text_add function in
epan/dissectors/packet-megaco.c in the MEGACO dissector
in Wireshark 1.10.x before 1.10.10 and 1.12.x before
1.12.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (infinite loop) via an empty line.
(CVE-2014-6423)

- The dissect_v9_v10_pdu_data function in
epan/dissectors/packet-netflow.c in the Netflow
dissector in Wireshark 1.10.x before 1.10.10 and 1.12.x
before 1.12.1 refers to incorrect offset and start
variables, which allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (uninitialized memory read and
application crash) via a crafted packet. (CVE-2014-6424)

- The (1) get_quoted_string and (2) get_unquoted_string
functions in epan/ dissectors/packet-cups.c in the CUPS
dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.1 allow remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (buffer over-read
and application crash) via a CUPS packet that lacks a
trailing '\0' character. (CVE-2014-6425)

- The dissect_hip_tlv function in
epan/dissectors/packet-hip.c in the HIP dissector in
Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.1 does not properly handle
a NULL tree, which allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (infinite loop) via a crafted packet.
(CVE-2014-6426)

- Off-by-one error in the is_rtsp_request_or_reply
function in epan/dissectors/ packet-rtsp.c in the RTSP
dissector in Wireshark 1.10.x before 1.10.10 and 1.12.x
before 1.12.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial
of service (application crash) via a crafted packet that
triggers parsing of a token located one position beyond
the current position. (CVE-2014-6427)

- The dissect_spdu function in
epan/dissectors/packet-ses.c in the SES dissector in
Wireshark 1.10.x before 1.10.10 and 1.12.x before 1.12.1
does not initialize a certain ID value, which allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) via a crafted packet.
(CVE-2014-6428)

- The SnifferDecompress function in wiretap/ngsniffer.c in
the DOS Sniffer file parser in Wireshark 1.10.x before
1.10.10 and 1.12.x before 1.12.1 does not properly
handle empty input data, which allows remote attackers
to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a
crafted file. (CVE-2014-6429)

- The SnifferDecompress function in wiretap/ngsniffer.c in
the DOS Sniffer file parser in Wireshark 1.10.x before
1.10.10 and 1.12.x before 1.12.1 does not validate
bitmask data, which allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (application crash) via a crafted
file. (CVE-2014-6430)

- Buffer overflow in the SnifferDecompress function in
wiretap/ngsniffer.c in the DOS Sniffer file parser in
Wireshark 1.10.x before 1.10.10 and 1.12.x before 1.12.1
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) via a crafted file that triggers
writes of uncompressed bytes beyond the end of the
output buffer. (CVE-2014-6431)

- The SnifferDecompress function in wiretap/ngsniffer.c in
the DOS Sniffer file parser in Wireshark 1.10.x before
1.10.10 and 1.12.x before 1.12.1 does not prevent data
overwrites during copy operations, which allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (application
crash) via a crafted file. (CVE-2014-6432)
