VMware vCenter Server 6.0.x < 6.0u3b / 6.5.x < 6.5c BlazeDS AMF3 RCE (VMSA-2017-0007)
High Nessus Plugin ID 99475
SynopsisA virtualization management application installed on the remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of VMware vCenter Server installed on the remote host is 6.0.x prior to 6.0u3b or 6.5.x prior to 6.5c. It is, therefore, affected by a flaw in FlexBlazeDS when processing AMF3 messages due to allowing the instantiation of arbitrary classes when deserializing objects. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by sending a specially crafted Java object, to execute arbitrary code.
SolutionUpgrade to VMware vCenter Server version 6.0u3b (6.0.0 build-5326177) / 6.0u3b on Windows (6.0.0 build-5318198) / 6.5.0c (6.5.0 build-5318112) or later. Alternatively, apply the vendor-supplied workaround.
