This script is (C) 2014-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote VMware ESXi 5.1 host is affected by multiple
vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote VMware ESXi 5.1 host is affected by the following
vulnerabilities :

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in the bundled
OpenSSL library that is triggered when handling OCSP
response verification. A remote attacker can exploit
this to crash the program. (CVE-2013-0166)

- An error exists related to the SSL/TLS/DTLS protocols,
CBC mode encryption and response time. An attacker
can obtain plaintext contents of encrypted traffic via
timing attacks. (CVE-2013-0169)

- An error exists in the libxml2 library related to the
expansion of XML internal entities that could allow
denial of service attacks. (CVE-2013-0338)

- A NULL pointer dereference flaw exists in the handling
of Network File Copy (NFC) traffic. An attacker can
exploit this by intercepting and modifying NFC traffic,
to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2014-1207)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in the handling
of invalid ports that could allow a guest user to crash
the VMX process. (CVE-2014-1208)
