Description

The remote VMware ESX host is missing a security-related patch. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities, including remote code execution vulnerabilities, in several third-party components and libraries :

  • Berkeley DB NSS module
  • cURL / libcURL
  • GnuTLS
  • Network Security Services (NSS) Library
  • OpenLDAP
  • OpenSSL
  • OpenSSL Kerberos
  • sudo
