VMware NSX Bash Environment Variable Command Injection (VMSA-2014-0010) (Shellshock)

This script is Copyright (C) 2014-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote host is affected by a command injection vulnerability.

Description :

The version of VMware NSX installed on the remote host is 4.x prior to
4.0.5 / 4.1.4 / 4.2.1 or 6.x prior to 6.0.7 / 6.1.1. It is, therefore,
affected by a command injection vulnerability in GNU Bash known as
Shellshock, which is due to the processing of trailing strings after
function definitions in the values of environment variables. This
allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code via environment
variable manipulation depending on the configuration of the system.
