Description

The version of VMware vCenter Server Appliance installed on the remote host is 5.1 prior to Update 3. It is, therefore, affected by an unspecified cross-site scripting vulnerability. A remote attacker can exploit this by means of a specially crafted URL or malicious web page, which can result in the execution of arbitrary script code.
