The remote host has a virtualization management application installed
that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
The VMware vCenter Server installed on the remote host is affected by
the following vulnerabilities :
- An XML external entity (XXE) injection flaw exists in
Flex BlazeDS in the file flex-messaging-core.jar due to
an incorrectly configured XML parser accepting XML
external entities from untrusted sources. A remote
attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted AMF
message containing an XML external entity declaration in
conjunction with an entity reference, to read arbitrary
files and thus gain access to potentially sensitive
- A server-side request forgery (SSRF) vulnerability exists
in Flex BlazeDS. A remote attacker can exploit this,
via a crafted XML document, to direct HTTP traffic to
intranet servers, thus bypassing access restrictions and
allowing further host-based attacks to be conducted.
