medium Nessus Plugin ID 80810

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 ieee802154_map_rec function in epan/dissectors/packet-ieee802154.c in the IEEE 802.15.4 dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.11 and 1.10.x before 1.10.3 uses an incorrect pointer chain, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted packet.
(CVE-2013-6336)

- Unspecified vulnerability in the NBAP dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.11 and 1.10.x before 1.10.3 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted packet.
(CVE-2013-6337)

- The dissect_sip_common function in epan/dissectors/packet-sip.c in the SIP dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.11 and 1.10.x before 1.10.3 does not properly initialize a data structure, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted packet.
(CVE-2013-6338)

- The dissect_openwire_type function in epan/dissectors/packet-openwire.c in the OpenWire dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.11 and 1.10.x before 1.10.3 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (loop) via a crafted packet. (CVE-2013-6339)

- epan/dissectors/packet-tcp.c in the TCP dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.11 and 1.10.x before 1.10.3 does not properly determine the amount of remaining data, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted packet.
(CVE-2013-6340)

Solution
