VMware vCenter 6.0 LDAP Certificate Validation MitM Spoofing (VMSA-2015-0006)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote host has a virtualization management application installed
that is affected by a man-in-the-middle spoofing vulnerability.

Description :

The VMware vCenter Server installed on the remote host is version 6.0
prior to 6.0u1. It is, therefore, affected by a man-in-the-middle
spoofing vulnerability due to improper validation of X.509
certificates from TLS LDAP servers. A remote, man-in-the-middle
attacker can exploit this to intercept network traffic by spoofing a
TLS server via a crafted certificate, resulting in the manipulation or
disclosure of sensitive information.
