VMware has released security updates for multiple third party packages for the ESX Service Console. These updates address vulnerabilities in the perl, krb5, samba, tar, and cpio packages. Exploitation of these vulnerabilities may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code, cause a denial-of-service condition, or bypass security restrictions.
