vCenter Server Security Advisory – VMSA-2021-0010
Last week, VMware released information on a critical issue affecting Plug-ins on vCenter Server. VMware recommend customers patch or implement the workaround as soon as possible.
The vSphere Client (HTML5) contains a remote code execution vulnerability due to lack of input validation in multiple plug-ins in vCenter (some of which are enabled by default). VMware has evaluated the severity of this issue to be in the Critical severity range with a maximum CVSSv3 base score of 9.8. The full notice (including list of plug-ins) can be read at https://www.vmware.com/security/advisories/VMSA-2021-0010.html
This affects certain versions of vCenter Server (Windows and the VCSA alike). The work around is to disable the affected plug-ins in vCenter – KB 83829. This does impact management and is considered a short-term stop gap.
