3. Problem Description

   a. vCenter Server Appliance directory traversal

      The vCenter Server Appliance (vCSA) contains a directory
      traversal vulnerability that allows an authenticated 
      remote user to retrieve arbitrary files. Exploitation of
      this issue may expose sensitive information stored on the 
      server. 

      VMware would like to thank Alexander Minozhenko from ERPScan for
      reporting this issue to us.

      The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
      has assigned the name CVE-2012-6324 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. vCenter Server Appliance arbitrary file download

      The vCenter Server Appliance (vCSA) contains an XML parsing 
      vulnerability that allows an authenticated remote user to
      retrieve arbitrary files.  Exploitation of this issue may
      expose sensitive information stored on the server.

        ESX             any       ESX      not applicable

    d. vCenter Server and vCSA webservice logging denial of service

      The vCenter Server and vCenter Server Appliance (vCSA) both
      contain a vulnerability that allows unauthenticated remote 
      users to create abnormally large log entries.  Exploitation
      of this issue may allow an attacker to fill the system volume
      of the vCenter host or appliance VM and create a 
      denial-of-service condition.
