Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : gimp (cve_2012_3236_buffer_overflow)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 80620


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 :

Upgrade to Solaris 11/11 SRU 11.4.
