Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : apache (cve_2012_0021_improper_input)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 80581


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


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

- The log_cookie function in mod_log_config.c in the mod_log_config module in the Apache HTTP Server 2.2.17 through 2.2.21, when a threaded MPM is used, does not properly handle a %{}C format string, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) via a cookie that lacks both a name and a value.


Upgrade to Solaris 11/11 SRU 6.6.
