CVE-2021-21973 Scanner Detail

VMware vCenter Server and VMware Cloud Foundation are virtualization solutions that allow organizations to manage their IT infrastructure in an efficient and cost-effective manner. VMware vCenter Server acts as the central hub for managing virtual machines, providing a single point of control for tasks such as provisioning, monitoring, and scaling. Meanwhile, VMware Cloud Foundation is an integrated software stack that combines compute, storage, and networking with automation and lifecycle management capabilities.

However, these products are not without their weaknesses. One such vulnerability is CVE-2021-21973, which was recently discovered in the vSphere Client (HTML5) component of VMware vCenter Server and VMware Cloud Foundation. This vulnerability allows attackers with network access to port 443 to exploit a server-side request forgery (SSRF) flaw due to a lack of proper URL validation in a vCenter Server plugin.

If this vulnerability is successfully exploited, an attacker can gain access to sensitive information stored within the virtual environment, including virtual machines, network devices, and other resources. This information could be used for a variety of malicious purposes, such as conducting further attacks, sabotaging operations, or stealing confidential data.
