Synopsis :

A virtualization appliance installed on the remote host is affected by
a remote code execution vulnerability.

Description :

The version of VMware vCloud Director installed on the remote host is
5.5.x prior to 5.5.6.1, 5.6.x prior to 5.6.5.1, or 8.0.x prior to
8.0.1.1. It is, therefore, affected by a flaw in the bundled Oracle
JRE JMX subcomponent due to deserializing any class when deserializing
authentication credentials. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can
exploit this to execute arbitrary code.
