Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : libvorbis (cve_2012_0444_memory_corruption)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 80686


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 :

- Mozilla Firefox before 3.6.26 and 4.x through 9.0, Thunderbird before 3.1.18 and 5.0 through 9.0, and SeaMonkey before 2.7 do not properly initialize nsChildView data structures, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted Ogg Vorbis file.


Upgrade to Solaris 11/11 SRU 8.5.
