Medium Nessus Plugin ID 90711
SynopsisA virtualization appliance installed on the remote host is affected by a session hijacking vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of VMware vCloud Director installed on the remote host is 5.5.x prior to 5.5.6. It is, therefore, affected by a flaw in the VMware Client Integration Plugin due to a failure to handle session content in a secure manner. A remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to visit a malicious web page, to conduct a session hijacking attack. It can also be exploited to carry out a man-in-the-middle attack.
SolutionUpgrade to VMware vCloud Director version 5.5.6 or later.
