DESCRIPTION:
A security issue and a vulnerability have been reported in VMware

forwarding of incoming web requests to arbitrary locations.

2) Certain unspecified input used when generating JSON error messages
in WebAccess is not properly sanitised before being returned to the
user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code
in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.

SOLUTION:
Disable WebAccess. Please see the vendor's advisory for additional
information.
