Description

The remote VMware ESX / ESXi host is missing a security-related patch. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities, including remote code execution vulnerabilities, in the following components :

  • ISC DHCP dhclient
  • Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) subsystem
  • Java Runtime Environment (JRE)
  • Java SE Development Kit (JDK)
  • Java SE Web Start
  • Linux kernel
  • Linux kernel 32-bit and 64-bit emulation
  • Linux kernel Simple Internet Transition INET6
  • Linux kernel tty
  • Linux kernel virtual file system (VFS)
  • Red Hat dhcpd init script for DHCP
  • SBNI WAN driver
