Synopsis :

The remote host has a virtualization appliance installed that is
affected by an arbitrary file upload vulnerability.

Description :

The version of vCenter Operations Manager installed on the remote host
is earlier than 5.0.3. It is, therefore, potentially affected by an
arbitrary file upload vulnerability in the Apache Struts component. By
exploiting this flaw, a remote, unauthenticated attacker could overwrite
arbitrary files on the remote host subject to the privileges of the user
running the affected application.
