CRLF injection vulnerability in VMware vCenter Server 6.0 before U2 and ESXi 6.0 allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary HTTP headers and conduct HTTP response splitting attacks via unspecified vectors.

Weakness

The product uses CRLF (carriage return line feeds) as a special element, e.g. to separate lines or records, but it does not neutralize or incorrectly neutralizes CRLF sequences from inputs.

Affected Software

Name Vendor Start Version End Version
Esxi Vmware 6.0 6.0
Vcenter_server Vmware * 6.0
