Version 1

    LANDesk Security and Patch News



    • (September 26, 2010) VMware Inc has released an update for its VMware ACE application. Version 2.7.2 is available. The following 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.

        * 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.
