VMware Security Updates for vCenter Server (VMSA-2013-0006)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 66274
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


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


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.

- 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)


Upgrade to VMware vCenter 5.1 update 1 or later.
