Medium Nessus Plugin ID 52014
SynopsisThe remote host has an update manager installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of VMware vCenter Update Manager installed on the remote Windows host is 4.0 earlier than Update 3 or 4.1 earlier than Update 1. The installed version is, therefore, potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the embedded Jetty Web server :
- A directory traversal vulnerability allows a remote, unauthenticated attacker to obtain files from the remote host. (CVE-2009-1523)
- A cross-site scripting vulnerability allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary script code in the user's browser. (CVE-2009-1524)
SolutionUpgrade to vCenter Update Manager 4.0 Update 3 / 4.1 Update 1 or later.
