A virtualization management application installed on the remote host
is affected by a session hijacking vulnerability.
The version of VMware vCenter Server installed on the remote host is
5.5.x prior to 5.5u3d or 6.0.x prior to 6.0u2. It is, therefore,
affected by a flaw in the VMware Client Integration Plugin due to a
failure to handle session content in a secure manner. A remote
attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to visit a malicious
web page, to conduct a session hijacking attack. It can also be
exploited to carry out a man-in-the-middle attack.

Upgrade to VMware vCenter Server version 5.5u3d (5.5.0 build-3721164)
/ 6.0u2 (6.0.0 build-3634788) or later.

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.8
