Synopsis

The remote Solaris system is missing a security patch for third-party software.

Description

The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address security updates :

- The dissect_packet function in epan/packet.c in Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.11 and 1.6.x before 1.6.5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a long packet in a capture file, as demonstrated by an airopeek file. (CVE-2012-0041)

- Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.11 and 1.6.x before 1.6.5 does not properly perform certain string conversions, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via a crafted packet, related to epan/to_str.c.
(CVE-2012-0042)

- Buffer overflow in the reassemble_message function in epan/dissectors/ packet-rlc.c in the RLC dissector in Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.11 and 1.6.x before 1.6.5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a series of fragmented RLC packets. (CVE-2012-0043)

- Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.11 and 1.6.x before 1.6.5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a long packet in a (1) Accellent 5Views (aka .5vw) file, (2) I4B trace file, or (3) NETMON 2 capture file. (CVE-2012-0066)

- wiretap/iptrace.c in Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.11 and 1.6.x before 1.6.5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a long packet in an AIX iptrace file. (CVE-2012-0067)

- The lanalyzer_read function in wiretap/lanalyzer.c in Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.11 and 1.6.x before 1.6.5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a Novell catpure file containing a record that is too small. (CVE-2012-0068)

Solution

Upgrade to Solaris 11/11 SRU 04.
