ESX Security Vulnerabilities6 April 2007 · Filed in News
Within the last few days, VMware has acknowledged the presence of a number of security vulnerabilities within the flagship ESX Server product. At least two of these vulnerabilities were discovered during an internal security audit of the code, but it’s unclear how many of the rest were internally discovered or externally discovered and reported to VMware. There has been no indication that there are any publicly-available exploits for any of these vulnerabilities.
In fact, in two of the vulnerabilities disclosed by VMware, the attack vectors are currently listed as “unknown.”
