I'm delighted to report that my hard working colleagues, Darren Moffat and Pete Dennis, have released the Solaris 11 Critical Patch Update package to make it easier for you to install and track fixes for Criticial Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE).
Once you've installed the package (pkg install solaris-11-cpu), applying all available Solaris fixes for CVE is now as simple as:
# pkg update solaris-11-cpu
See Darren's blog and MOS doc 1948847.1 for details.
Now that's a nice Thanksgiving present!
