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


Synopsis :

A virtualization appliance installed on the remote host is affected by
a session hijacking vulnerability.

Description :

The version of VMware vCloud Director installed on the remote host is
5.5.x prior to 5.5.6. 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.
