VMware vCenter Operations Management vApp JRE Update 1.7.0_76-b13 (VMSA-2015-0003) (POODLE)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 82706


The remote host has a virtualization application installed that is missing a vendor supplied security patch.


The version of VMware vCenter Operations Manager installed on the remote host has a bundled version of the Java JRE prior to version 1.7.0_76-b13 (aka 7.0.760). It is, therefore, affected by a man-in-the-middle (MitM) information disclosure vulnerability known as POODLE. The vulnerability is due to the way SSL 3.0 handles padding bytes when decrypting messages encrypted using block ciphers in cipher block chaining (CBC) mode. MitM attackers can decrypt a selected byte of a cipher text in as few as 256 tries if they are able to force a victim application to repeatedly send the same data over newly created SSL 3.0 connections. (CVE-2014-3566)

Additionally, unspecified vulnerabilities also exist in the following bundled Java components :

- 2D (CVE-2014-6585, CVE-2014-6591)

- Deployment (CVE-2015-0403, CVE-2015-0406)

- Hotspot (CVE-2014-6601, CVE-2015-0383, CVE-2015-0395, CVE-2015-0437)

- Installation (CVE-2015-0421)

- JAX-WS (CVE-2015-0412)

- JSSE (CVE-2014-6593)

- Libraries (CVE-2014-6549, CVE-2014-6587, CVE-2015-0400)

- RMI (CVE-2015-0408)

- Security (CVE-2015-0410)

- Serviceability (CVE-2015-0413)

- Swing (CVE-2015-0407)
