The remote VMware ESXi 5.5 host is affected by a privilege escalation
The remote VMware ESXi 5.5 host is affected by an error in the
handling of certain Virtual Machine file descriptors. This could allow
an unprivileged user with the 'Add Existing Disk' privilege to obtain
read and write access to arbitrary files, possibly leading to
arbitrary code execution after a host reboot.
