Synopsis :

The remote VMware ESXi host is affected by a remote code execution
vulnerability.

Description :

The remote VMware ESXi host is version 5.1 prior to build 3021178. It
is, therefore, affected by a remote code execution vulnerability due
to a double-free error in the SLPDProcessMessage() function in
OpenSLP. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a
crafted package, to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of
service condition.
