VMware vCenter Update Manager XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote web server has a cross-site scripting vulnerability.

Description :

The version of VMware vCenter Update Manager running on the remote
host has a cross-site scripting vulnerability. This is due to a bug
in Jetty, the underlying web server. When Jetty displays a directory
listing, arbitrary text can be inserted into the page.

A remote attacker could exploit this by tricking a user into making a
maliciously crafted request, resulting in the execution of arbitrary
script code.

It is likely this version of Update Manager also has a directory
traversal vulnerability, though Nessus did not check for that issue.
