1. Summary

   VMware has updated VMware vCenter Server, ESXi and ESX to address
   a vulnerability in the Network File Copy (NFC) Protocol. This update
   also addresses multiple security vulnerabilities in third party
   libraries used by VirtualCenter, ESX and ESXi.

3. Problem Description

   a. VMware vCenter, ESXi and ESX NFC protocol memory corruption
      vulnerability

      VMware vCenter Server, ESXi and ESX contain a vulnerability in the
      handling of the Network File Copy (NFC) protocol. To exploit this
      vulnerability, an attacker must intercept and modify the NFC 
      traffic between vCenter Server and the client or ESXi/ESX and the
      client.  Exploitation of the issue may lead to code execution.

      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-2013-1659 to this issue.

      Column 4 of the following table lists the action required to
      remediate the vulnerability in each release, if a solution is
      available.

   b. VirtualCenter, ESX and ESXi Oracle (Sun) JRE update 1.5.0_38

      Oracle (Sun) JRE is updated to version 1.5.0_38, which addresses
      multiple security issues that existed in earlier releases of
      Oracle (Sun) JRE. 

      Oracle has documented the CVE identifiers that are addressed
      in JRE 1.5.0_38 in the Oracle Java SE Critical Patch Update
      Advisory of October 2012.
