Synopsis: VMware product updates address critical Bash
security vulnerabilities
Issue date: 2014-09-30
Updated on: 2014-09-30 (Initial Advisory)

CVE-2014-7187
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary

VMware product updates address Bash security vulnerabilities.

2. Relevant Releases (Affected products for which remediation is present)

vCenter Log Insight 2.0

3. Problem Description

a. Bash update for multiple products.

Bash libraries have been updated in multiple products to resolve
multiple critical security issues, also referred to as Shellshock.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
has assigned the identifiers CVE-2014-6271, CVE-2014-7169,
CVE-2014-7186, and CVE-2014-7187 to these issues.

VMware products have been grouped into the following four
product categories:

I) ESXi and ESX Hypervisor
ESXi is not affected because ESXi uses the Ash shell (through
busybox), which is not affected by the vulnerability reported
for the Bash shell.
ESX has an affected version of the Bash shell. See table 1 for
remediation for ESX.

II) Windows-based products
Windows-based products, including all versions of vCenter Server
running on Windows, are not affected.

III) VMware (virtual) appliances
VMware (virtual) appliances ship with an affected version of Bash.
See table 2 for remediation for appliances.

IV) Products that run on Linux, Android, OSX or iOS (excluding
virtual
appliances)

Products that run on Linux, Android, OSX or iOS (excluding
virtual appliances) might use the Bash shell that is part of the
operating system. If the operating system has a vulnerable
version of Bash, the Bash security vulnerability might be
exploited through the product. VMware recommends that customers
contact their operating system vendor for a patch.

MITIGATIONS

VMware encourages restricting access to appliances through
firewall rules and other network layer controls to only trusted IP
addresses. This measure will greatly reduce any risk to these
appliances.

RECOMMENDATIONS

VMware recommends customers evaluate and deploy patches for
affected products in Table 1 and 2 below as these
patches become available.

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