Description

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

  • Buffer overflow in markup.c in the MXit protocol plugin in libpurple in Pidgin before 2.10.5 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted inline image in a message. (CVE-2012-3374)
