   k. Vulnerability in third party Apache Struts component

      The version of Apache Struts in vCenter Operations has been
      updated to 2.3.4 which addresses an arbitrary file overwrite
      vulnerability. This vulnerability allows an attacker to create
      a denial of service by overwriting arbitrary files without
      authentication. The attacker would need to be on the same network
      as the system where vCOps is installed.

      The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
      assigned the name CVE-2012-0393 to this issue.

      Note: Apache struts 2.3.4 addresses the following issues as well:
      CVE-2011-5057, CVE-2012-0391, CVE-2012-0392, CVE-2012-0394. It
      was found that these do not affect vCOps.
    
      VMware would like to thank Alexander Minozhenko from ERPScan for
      reporting this issue to us.
