Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : perl-58 (cve_2011_2728_denial_of)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 80732


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 bsd_glob function in the File::Glob module for Perl before 5.14.2 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a glob expression with the GLOB_ALTDIRFUNC flag, which triggers an uninitialized pointer dereference. (CVE-2011-2728)


Upgrade to Solaris 11/11 SRU 3.
