The original vulnerability, CVE-2015-2342, was a poorly configured JMX RMI service in vCenter Server that was remotely accessible. The flaw allowed unauthenticated attackers connect to the service and use it to run code on the server; versions 5.5, 5.1 and 5.0 are affected, VMware said. VCenter Server is used by organizations to manage their virtual server environments. Friday’s advisory from VMware said that the original patch for CVE-2015-2342 was incomplete, and an additional patch is require

The problem affects voice-over-internet-protocol (Voip) phones, commonly used by businesses. Just by running a couple of lines of code on a website visited by the phone user, the researchers demonstrated how premium-rate calls could be made. A security expert said such bugs could make "millions" for the perpetrators.
Researchers at Heimdal Security said on Friday the bot is being sent to Android users via SMS and MMS messages and if the victim executes the APK, the bot roots the phone and gives the attacker extensive capabilities on the compromised device.
A vulnerability in the Internet Key Exchange (IKE) version 1 (v1) and IKE version 2 (v2) code of Cisco ASA Software could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a reload of the affected system or to remotely execute code. The vulnerability is due to a buffer overflow in the affected code area. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending crafted UDP packets to the affected system. An exploit could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code and obtain full control of the
