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

Synopsis :

The remote Solaris system is missing a security patch for third-party

Description :

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

- Multiple stack-based buffer overflows in ntpd in NTP
before 4.2.8 allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary
code via a crafted packet, related to (1) the
crypto_recv function when the Autokey Authentication
feature is used, (2) the ctl_putdata function, and (3)
the configure function. (CVE-2014-9295)

- The receive function in ntp_proto.c in ntpd in NTP
before 4.2.8 continues to execute after detecting a
certain authentication error, which might allow remote
attackers to trigger an unintended association change
via crafted packets. (CVE-2014-9296)
