Synopsis:          VMware vCenter Orchestrator and Alive Enterprise
                   remote code execution vulnerability
Issue date:        2011-03-14

1. Summary

   A vulnerability in VMware vCenter Orchestrator (vCO) and Alive
   Enterprise could allow remote execution.

2. Relevant releases

   VMware vCenter Orchestrator 4.1
   VMware vCenter Orchestrator 4.0

   Alive Enterprise 7.2

3. Problem Description

    VMware vCenter Orchestrator is an application to automate
    management tasks. Alive Enterprise is an application to monitor
    processes. Both products embed Apache Struts which is a third
    party component.

    The following vulnerability has been reported in Apache Struts
    2.0.11 or earlier. A remote execution of code vulnerability could
    allow malicious users to bypass the '#'-usage protection built into
    the ParametersInterceptor, which could allow server side context
    objects to be manipulated.

    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
    has assigned the name CVE-2010-1870 to this vulnerability.

    VMware would like to thank the Vulnerability Research Team of
    Digital Defense, Inc. for reporting this issue to us.

    Apache Struts version 2.0.11 and earlier also contain
    vulnerabilities which have not been assigned CVE names.  This
    advisory also addresses these vulnerabilities described at the
