The remote VMware ESXi 5.5 host is affected by multiple
The remote VMware ESXi host is version 5.5 prior to build 1980513. It
is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities in the glibc
- A buffer overflow flaw exists in the 'extend_buffers'
function of the 'posix/regexec.c' file, due to not
properly validating user input. Using a specially
crafted expression, a remote attacker can cause a
denial of service. (CVE-2013-0242)
- A buffer overflow flaw exists in the 'getaddrinfo'
function of the '/sysdeps/posix/getaddrinfo.c' file,
due to not properly validating user input. A remote
attacker can cause a denial of service by triggering
a large number of domain conversions. (CVE-2013-1914)
