Description :

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

- Multiple integer overflows in the (1) FontFileAddEntry
and (2) lexAlias functions in X.Org libXfont before
1.4.8 and 1.4.9x before 1.4.99.901 might allow local
users to gain privileges by adding a directory with a
large fonts.dir or fonts.alias file to the font path,
which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow, related to
metadata. (CVE-2014-0209)

- Multiple buffer overflows in X.Org libXfont before 1.4.8
and 1.4.9x before 1.4.99.901 allow remote font servers
to execute arbitrary code via a crafted xfs protocol
reply to the (1) _fs_recv_conn_setup, (2)
fs_read_open_font, (3) fs_read_query_info, (4)
fs_read_extent_info, (5) fs_read_glyphs, (6)
fs_read_list, or (7) fs_read_list_info function.
(CVE-2014-0210)

- Multiple integer overflows in the (1) fs_get_reply, (2)
fs_alloc_glyphs, and (3) fs_read_extent_info functions
in X.Org libXfont before 1.4.8 and 1.4.9x before
1.4.99.901 allow remote font servers to execute
arbitrary code via a crafted xfs reply, which triggers a
buffer overflow. (CVE-2014-0211)
