An application hosted on the remote web server has a cross-site
The version of WebAccess hosted on the remote VMware ESX server has a
cross-site scripting vulnerability. It is possible to specify which XML
web service to use for a given session by passing a specially crafted
value to the 'view' parameter of '/ui/vmDirect.do'.
A remote attacker could exploit this by tricking a user into requesting
a maliciously crafted URL, causing all SOAP requests (including
plaintext authentication credentials) to be sent to a host that is
controlled by the attacker.
This version of ESX likely has other vulnerabilities, though Nessus has
not checked for those.
