VMSA-2011-0003 : Third-party component updates for VMware vCenter Server, vCenter Update Manager, ESXi and ESX

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 51971

Synopsis

The remote VMware ESXi / ESX host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description

a. vCenter Server and vCenter Update Manager update Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition to Service Pack 3

Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition (SQL Express) distributed with vCenter Server 4.1 Update 1 and vCenter Update Manager 4.1 Update 1 is upgraded from SQL Express Service Pack 2 to SQL Express Service Pack 3, to address multiple security issues that exist in the earlier releases of Microsoft SQL Express.

Customers using other database solutions need not update for these issues.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2008-5416, CVE-2008-0085, CVE-2008-0086, CVE-2008-0107 and CVE-2008-0106 to the issues addressed in MS SQL Express Service Pack 3.

b. vCenter Apache Tomcat Management Application Credential Disclosure

The Apache Tomcat Manager application configuration file contains logon credentials that can be read by unprivileged local users.

The issue is resolved by removing the Manager application in vCenter 4.1 Update 1.

If vCenter 4.1 is updated to vCenter 4.1 Update 1 the logon credentials are not present in the configuration file after the update.

VMware would like to thank Claudio Criscione of Secure Networking for reporting this issue to us.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-2928 to this issue.
