SynopsisThe remote VMware ESXi 5.0 host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe remote VMware ESXi host is version 5.0 prior to build 1749766. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- A flaw exists in the monlist feature in NTP. A remote attacker can exploit this flaw, using a specially crafted packet to load the query function in monlist, to conduct a distributed denial of service attack.
- An unspecified privilege escalation vulnerability exists that allows an attacker to gain host OS privileges or cause a denial of service condition by modifying a configuration file. (CVE-2014-8370)
