    description The remote VMware ESXi host is version 5.1 prior to build 1743201. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - A flaw exists in the monlist feature in NTP. A remote attacker can exploit this flaw, using a specially crafted packet to load the query function in monlist, to conduct a distributed denial of service attack. (CVE-2013-5211) - An unspecified privilege escalation vulnerability exists that allows an attacker to gain host OS privileges or cause a denial of service condition by modifying a configuration file. (CVE-2014-8370) - A flaw exists in the VMware Authorization process (vmware-authd) due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2015-1044)

    description a. VMware ESXi, Workstation, Player, and Fusion host privilege escalation vulnerability VMware ESXi, Workstation, Player and Fusion contain an arbitrary file write issue. Exploitation this issue may allow for privilege escalation on the host. The vulnerability does not allow for privilege escalation from the guest Operating System to the host or vice-versa. This means that host memory can not be manipulated from the Guest Operating System. Mitigation For ESXi to be affected, permissions must have been added to ESXi (or a vCenter Server managing it) for a virtual machine administrator role or greater. VMware would like to thank Shanon Olsson for reporting this issue to us through JPCERT. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the identifier CVE-2014-8370 to this issue. b. VMware Workstation, Player, and Fusion Denial of Service vulnerability VMware Workstation, Player, and Fusion contain an input validation issue in the Host Guest File System (HGFS). This issue may allow for a Denial of Service of the Guest Operating system. VMware would like to thank Peter Kamensky from Digital Security for reporting this issue to us. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the identifier CVE-2015-1043 to this issue. c. VMware ESXi, Workstation, and Player Denial of Service vulnerability VMware ESXi, Workstation, and Player contain an input validation issue in VMware Authorization process (vmware-authd). This issue may allow for a Denial of Service of the host. On VMware ESXi and on Workstation running on Linux the Denial of Service would be partial. VMware would like to thank Dmitry Yudin @ret5et for reporting this issue to us through HP's Zero Day Initiative. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the identifier CVE-2015-1044 to this issue. d. Update to VMware vCenter Server and ESXi for OpenSSL 1.0.1 and 0.9.8 package The OpenSSL library is updated to version 1.0.1j or 0.9.8zc to resolve multiple security issues. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2014-3513, CVE-2014-3567, CVE-2014-3566 (ìPOODLEî) and CVE-2014-3568 to these issues. e. Update to ESXi libxml2 package The libxml2 library is updated to version libxml2-2.7.6-17 to resolve a security issue. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2014-3660 to this issue.

    description The remote VMware ESXi host is version 5.5 prior to build 2352327. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities : - An error exists related to DTLS SRTP extension handling and specially crafted handshake messages that can allow denial of service attacks via memory leaks. (CVE-2014-3513) - An error exists related to the way SSL 3.0 handles padding bytes when decrypting messages encrypted using block ciphers in cipher block chaining (CBC) mode. A man-in-the-middle attacker can decrypt a selected byte of a cipher text in as few as 256 tries if they are able to force a victim application to repeatedly send the same data over newly created SSL 3.0 connections. This is also known as the 'POODLE' issue. (CVE-2014-3566) - An error exists related to session ticket handling that can allow denial of service attacks via memory leaks. (CVE-2014-3567) - An error exists related to the build configuration process and the 'no-ssl3' build option that allows servers and clients to process insecure SSL 3.0 handshake messages. (CVE-2014-3568) - A denial of service vulnerability in libxml2 due to entity expansion even when entity substitution is disabled. A remote attacker, using a crafted XML document containing larger number of nested entity references, can cause the consumption of CPU resources. (CVE-2014-3660) - An unspecified privilege escalation vulnerability. (CVE-2014-8370) - An unspecified denial of service vulnerability due to an input validation issue in the VMware Authorization process (vmware-authd). (CVE-2015-1044)
