VMSA-2014-0010.13 - VMware product updates address critical Bash security vulns
Updated on: 2014-10-17
CVE numbers: CVE-2014-6271, CVE-2014-6277, CVE-2014-6278, CVE-2014-7169, CVE-2014-7186, CVE-2014-7187
Summary: VMware product updates address Bash security vulnerabilities.
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...
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.
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...
