ESXi 5.0 < Build 608089 Multiple Vulnerabilities (remote check)

Description

The remote VMware ESXi 5.0 host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - A denial of service vulnerability exists in the big2_toUtf8() function in file lib/xmltok.c in the libexpat library. A remote attacker can exploit this, via an XML document having malformed UTF-8 sequences, to cause a buffer over-read, thus crashing the application. (CVE-2009-3560) - A denial of service vulnerability exists in the updatePosition() function in file lib/xmltok.c in the libexpat library. A remote attacker can exploit this, via an XML document having malformed UTF-8 sequences, to cause a buffer over-read, thus crashing the application. (CVE-2009-3720) - An integer overflow condition exists in the BZ2_decompress() function in file decompress.c in the bzip2 and libbzip2 library. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted compressed file, to cause a denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2010-0405) - A denial of service vulnerability exists in the audioop module due to multiple integer overflows conditions in file audioop.c. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a large fragment or argument, to cause a buffer overflow, resulting in an application crash. (CVE-2010-1634) - A denial of service vulnerability exists in the audioop module due to a failure to verify the relationships between size arguments and byte string length. A remote attacker can exploit this, via crafted arguments, to cause memory corruption, resulting in an application crash. (CVE-2010-2089) - A flaw exists in the urllib and urllib2 modules due to processing Location headers that specify redirection to a file. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted URL, to gain sensitive information or cause a denial of service. (CVE-2011-1521) - A privilege escalation vulnerability exists due to an incorrect ACL being used for the VMware Tools folder. An attacker on an adjacent network with access to a guest operating system can exploit this to gain elevated privileges on the guest operating system. (CVE-2012-1518)
