New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 8.4
SynopsisA virtualization appliance installed on the remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of VMware vCloud Director installed on the remote host is 9.1.x prior to 126.96.36.199, 9.5.x prior to 188.8.131.52, 9.7.x prior to 184.108.40.206, or 10.0.x prior to 10.0.0.2. It is, therefore, affected by a code injection vulnerability due to a failure to properly handle input. A remote, authenticated actor can exploit this, by sending malicious traffic to VMWare Cloud Director, in order to execute arbitrary code.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to VMware vCloud Director version 220.127.116.11 / 18.104.22.168 / 22.214.171.124 / 10.0.0.2 or later.
