Critical Nessus Plugin ID 89668

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 9.4

Synopsis

The remote VMware ESX / ESXi host is missing a security-related patch.

Description

The remote VMware ESX / ESXi host is missing a security-related patch.
It is, therefore, affected by a denial of service vulnerability in hostd-vmdb. A remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition. Additionally, multiple vulnerabilities, including remote code execution vulnerabilities, exist in multiple Java Runtime Environment (JRE) components :

- 2D
- AWT
- CORBA
- Deployment
- Hotspot
- Install
- JDBC
- JMX
- Libraries
- Networking
- Serialization
- Serviceability
- Sound

Solution

Apply the appropriate patch according to the vendor advisory that pertains to ESX version 4.0 / 4.1 or ESXi version 4.0 / 4.1.
