The remote VMware ESXi 5.5 host is affected by multiple
The remote VMware ESXi host is version 5.5 prior to build 1623387. It
is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- Multiple integer overflow conditions exist in the
bundled GNU C Library (glibc) due to improper validation
of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit
these issues to cause a buffer overflow, resulting in a
denial of service condition. (CVE-2013-4332)
- 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.
