A virtualization appliance installed on the remote host is affected by
an authentication bypass vulnerability.
The version of VMware vSphere Data Protection installed on the remote
host is 5.5.x / 5.8.x / 6.0.x / 6.1.x. It is, therefore, affected by
an authentication bypass vulnerability due to the use of an SSH
private key that has a known password and which is configured to allow
key-based authentication. A remote attacker can exploit this to gain
root login access via an SSH session.
