3. Problem Description

a. Important vCenter Server reflected cross-site scripting issue

The vSphere Web Client contains a reflected cross-site scripting
vulnerability due to a lack of input sanitization. An attacker can
exploit this issue by tricking a victim into clicking a malicious
link.

VMware would like to thank Matt Schmidt for reporting this issue to
us.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the identifier CVE-2015-6931 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.

VMware Product Running Replace with/
Product Version on Apply Patch
============== ======= ======= =============
vCenter Server 6.0 Any not affected
vCenter Server 5.5 Any 5.5 U2d *
vCenter Server 5.1 Any 5.1 U3d *
vCenter Server 5.0 Any 5.0 U3g *

* The client side component of the vSphere Web Client does not need
to be updated to remediate CVE-2015-6931. Updating the vCenter
Server is sufficient to remediate this issue.
