New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote host has a virtualization management application installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of VMware vCenter installed on the remote host is 5.1 prior to update 1. It therefore is potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- When deployed in an environment that uses Active Directory with anonymous LDAP binding enabled, VMware vCenter doesn't properly handle login credentials.
(CVE-2013-3107)

- The bundled version of Oracle JRE is earlier than 1.6.0_37 and thus, is affected by multiple security issues.

- The bundled version of Apache Tomcat is affected by multiple issues. (CVE-2012-2733, CVE-2012-4534)

Solution

Upgrade to VMware vCenter 5.1 update 1 or later.
