Re: VMware vuln with 9.8 severity rating is under attack


a tool for managing ...  execution of malicious code ... on a port that is exposed to the Internet.


Looks like it is an attack against the admin interface.  Rookie mistake to expose those to the Internet.  Really they belong on a dedicated, restricted-access Vlan.
