Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : wireshark (cve_2014_4020_numeric_errors)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 80814
SynopsisThe remote Solaris system is missing a security patch for third-party software.
DescriptionThe remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address security updates :
- The dissect_frame function in epan/dissectors/packet-frame.c in the frame metadissector in Wireshark 1.10.x before 1.10.8 interprets a negative integer as a length value even though it was intended to represent an error condition, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted packet.
SolutionUpgrade to Solaris 126.96.36.199.0.
