Description

a. VMware ESXi and ESX contain a vulnerability in hostd-vmdb.

To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker must intercept and modify the management traffic. Exploitation of the issue may lead to a Denial of Service of the hostd-vmdb service.

To reduce the likelihood of exploitation, vSphere components should be deployed on an isolated management network. VMware would like to thank Alex Chapman of Context Information Security for reporting this issue to us.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2013-5970 to this issue.

b. VMware vSphere Web Client Server Session Fixation Vulnerability The VMware vSphere Web Client Server contains a vulnerability in the handling of session IDs. To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker must know a valid session ID of an authenticated user. Exploitation of the issue may lead to Elevation of Privilege.

To reduce the likelihood of exploitation, vSphere components should be deployed on an isolated management network.

VMware would like to thank Alexey Tyurin of DSecRG for reporting this issue to us.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2013-5971 to this issue.

c. vCenter and Update Manager, Oracle JRE update 1.6.0_51. Oracle JRE is updated to version 1.6.0_51, which addresses multiple security issues that existed in earlier releases of Oracle JRE.

Oracle has documented the CVE identifiers that are addressed in JRE 1.6.0_51 in the Oracle Java SE Critical Patch Update Advisory of June 2013. The References section provides a link to this advisory.
