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 5.0 prior to update 3 or 5.1 prior to update 2. It is, therefore, potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A vulnerability exists in the handling of session IDs, which could lead to an escalation of privileges.
(CVE-2013-5971)

- Multiple vulnerabilities exists in the bundled version of the Java Runtime Environment.

Solution
