Networking equipment maker Cisco Systems has rolled out patches to address three critical security vulnerabilities in its IOS XE network operating system that remote attackers could potentially abuse to execute arbitrary code with administrative privileges and trigger a denial-of-service condition on vulnerable devices. The most severe of the issues is CVE-2021-34770, which Cisco calls a "Logic error" that occurs during the processing of CAPWAP packets that enable a central wireless Controller to manage a group of wireless access points.
VMware has fixed 19 vulnerabilities affecting VMware vCenter Server and VMware Cloud Foundation, the most critical of which is CVE-2021-22005. "This vulnerability can be used by anyone who can reach vCenter Server over the network to gain access, regardless of the configuration settings of vCenter Server," the company noted.
The most urgent among them is an arbitrary file upload vulnerability in the Analytics service that impacts vCenter Server 6.7 and 7.0 deployments. "A malicious actor with network access to port 443 on vCenter Server may exploit this issue to execute code on vCenter Server by uploading a specially crafted file," the company noted, adding "This vulnerability can be used by anyone who can reach vCenter Server over the network to gain access, regardless of the configuration settings of vCenter Server."
VMware warns customers to immediately patch a critical arbitrary file upload vulnerability in the Analytics service, impacting all appliances running default vCenter Server 6.7 and 7.0 deployments.vCenter Server is a server management solution that helps IT admins manage virtualized hosts and virtual machines in enterprise environments via a single console.
