VMware vRealize Operations running on the remote host is affected by a cross site request forgery vulnerability.


The version of VMware vRealize Operations (vROps) running on the remote host is 8.6.x prior to 8.6.4. It is, therefore, affected by a CSRF vulnerability. A malicious user could execute actions on the vROps platform on behalf of the authenticated victim user.
