XOR DDoS / botnet patch for Solaris 10 x86

http://www.scmagazine.com/malware-targets-linux-and-arm-architecture/article/391497/

refer to above which is for Linux but I'll need it for Solaris

Q1:
Anyone know if there's a patch to mitigate against the above XOR DDoS vulnerability?
If anyone has an Oracle subscription, mind letting me know if it's there & I'll check
with another dept's colleague to get it.  If there's an exact URL, mind posting it.

Q2:
Is the Shellshock patch for Solaris something that will help with this vulnerability?

Q3:
Any other mitigation that I could deploy?   Install a Solaris AV software?  It's quite
rare to have a realtime AV scanner in Solaris

A1: There is no glibc on solaris to be vulnerable to CVE-2015-0235
A2: No, it is indifferent
A3: You can try some hardening of system, though it is not always 100% bulletproof.

Not really a patch per se for this but instead the SSH servers on those devices should be configured to use cryptographic keys instead of passwords for authentication and remote login should be disabled for their root accounts.

I do suggest you check out this article which I see pretty decent in covering this Linux based vulnerability detectiin and prevention as overall efforts. The point is all about lockdown unnecessary use if SSH, remote access, default login, review account, anomalous network and processes runnjng the host services

Minimally ensure this CVE 2014-7169 for bash is closed
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/topics/security/alert-cve-2014-7169-2303276.html

In fact you do not have one specific patch for such bash vulnerability as listed based in Jan CPU till recent July release. But do consider going minimally the July patch applied..
