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


The remote VMware ESX host is missing a security-related patch. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities, including remote code execution vulnerabilities, in several third-party components and libraries :

- bind
- expat
- glib2
- Kernel
- newt
- nfs-utils
- OpenSSH
- OpenSSL


Apply the appropriate patch according to the vendor advisory that pertains to ESX version 3.5 / 4.0.
