Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : gnupg (cve_2013_4351_cryptographic_issues)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 80627
SynopsisThe remote Solaris system is missing a security patch for third-party software.
DescriptionThe remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address security updates :
- GnuPG 1.4.x, 2.0.x, and 2.1.x treats a key flags subpacket with all bits cleared (no usage permitted) as if it has all bits set (all usage permitted), which might allow remote attackers to bypass intended cryptographic protection mechanisms by leveraging the subkey. (CVE-2013-4351)
- The compressed packet parser in GnuPG 1.4.x before 1.4.15 and 2.0.x before 2.0.22 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite recursion) via a crafted OpenPGP message. (CVE-2013-4402)
SolutionUpgrade to Solaris 11.2.
