The following security fix and known issues are resolved in VMware ACE 2.7.2:
- VMware ACE Management Server for Windows updates Apache httpd to version 2.2.15
A function in Apache HTTP Server when multithreaded MPM is used
does not properly handle headers in subrequests in certain
circumstances which might allow remote attackers to obtain sensitive
information via a crafted request that triggers access to memory
locations associated with an earlier request.
The Apache mod_isapi module can be forced to unload a specific
library before the processing of a request is complete, resulting
in memory corruption. This vulnerability might allow a remote
attacker to execute arbitrary code.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
has assigned the names CVE-2010-0434 and CVE-2010-0425 to the
issues addressed in this update.
Pressing the Ctrl+Alt+Enter keys on an ACE virtual machine running in kiosk mode might cause the keyboard to become unresponsive.
PCI devices cannot be added back into encrypted ACE virtual machines if removed accidentally by non-ACE Administrators. To fix this issue, only ACE Administrators can add or remove PCI devices to ACE virtual machines after entering the Admin mode password.
