CVE-2020-3952: Sensitive Information Disclosure in VMware vCenter Server (VMSA-2020-0006)
VMware patches a critical information disclosure flaw in vCenter Server with a CVSSv3 score of 10.0.
On April 9, VMware published VMSA-2020-0006, a security advisory for a critical vulnerability in vCenter Server that received the maximum CVSSv3 score of 10.0.
CVE-2020-3952 is a sensitive information disclosure flaw in VMware vCenter Server. The flaw resides in the VMware Directory Service (vmdir), which is included in vCenter Server as part of an embedded or external Platform Services Controller (PSC). Under “certain conditions,” vmdir does not implement proper access controls, which could allow a malicious attacker with network access to obtain sensitive information. While the advisory does not indicate what sensitive information could be obtained, VMware notes this information could be used to compromise vCenter Server or other services that use vmdir for authentication.
