Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : python (cve_2010_1634_integer_overflow)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 80748


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 :

- Multiple integer overflows in audioop.c in the audioop module in Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.1, and 3.2 allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a large fragment, as demonstrated by a call to audioop.lin2lin with a long string in the first argument, leading to a buffer overflow. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incorrect fix for CVE-2008-3143.5. (CVE-2010-1634)


Upgrade to Solaris 11.1.
