Medium Nessus Plugin ID 80802

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 :

- epan/dissectors/packet-ansi_a.c in the ANSI A dissector in Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.12 and 1.6.x before 1.6.6 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via a malformed packet. (CVE-2012-1593)

- epan/dissectors/packet-ieee80211.c in the IEEE 802.11 dissector in Wireshark 1.6.x before 1.6.6 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a crafted packet. (CVE-2012-1594)

- The pcap_process_pseudo_header function in wiretap/pcap-common.c in Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.12 and 1.6.x before 1.6.6 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a WTAP_ENCAP_ERF file containing an Extension or Multi-Channel header with an invalid pseudoheader size, related to the pcap and pcap-ng file parsers.
(CVE-2012-1595)

- The mp2t_process_fragmented_payload function in epan/dissectors/packet-mp2t.c in the MP2T dissector in Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.12 and 1.6.x before 1.6.6 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a packet containing an invalid pointer value that triggers an incorrect memory-allocation attempt. (CVE-2012-1596)
