The remote host is affected by an information disclosure

Description :

The version of VMware NSX Edge installed on the remote host is 6.1.x
prior to 6.1.7 or 6.2.x prior to 6.2.3. It is, therefore, affected by
a flaw in the SSL-VPN feature due to improper validation of input. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to disclose
potentially sensitive information. Note that this issue only applies
when SSL-VPN is enabled.
