Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : memcached (cve_2013_0179_buffer_errors)
Low Nessus Plugin ID 80703
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 :
- The process_bin_delete function in memcached.c in memcached 1.4.4 and other versions before 1.4.17, when running in verbose mode, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (segmentation fault) via a request to delete a key, which does not account for the lack of a null terminator in the key and triggers a buffer over-read when printing to stderr.
SolutionUpgrade to Solaris 11.2.
