The remote VMware ESXi 5.1 host is affected by multiple
The remote VMware ESXi host is version 5.1 prior to build 1743201. It
is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- A flaw exists in the monlist feature in NTP. A remote
attacker can exploit this flaw, using a specially
crafted packet to load the query function in monlist, to
conduct a distributed denial of service attack.
- An unspecified privilege escalation vulnerability exists
that allows an attacker to gain host OS privileges or
cause a denial of service condition by modifying a
configuration file. (CVE-2014-8370)
- A flaw exists in the VMware Authorization process
(vmware-authd) due to improper validation of
user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this
to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2015-1044)
