  1. Open redirection vulnerability.

VDP contains an open redirection vulnerability. A remote unauthenticated

attacker could potentially exploit this vulnerability to redirect

application users to arbitrary web URLs by tricking the victim users to

click on maliciously crafted links. The vulnerability could be used to

conduct phishing attacks that cause users to unknowingly visit malicious

sites.

 

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has

assigned the identifier CVE-2018-11067 to this issue.

  1. Information exposure vulnerability.

VDP contains an information exposure vulnerability. VDP Java

management console’s SSL/TLS private key may be leaked in the VDP

Java management client package. The private key could potentially be

used by an unauthenticated attacker on the same data-link layer to

initiate a MITM attack on management console users.

 

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has

assigned the identifier CVE-2018-11076 to this issue.

injection vulnerability. A malicious admin user may potentially be able

to execute arbitrary commands under root privilege.
