Critical Nessus Plugin ID 89668

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.
