Notes: These vulnerabilities can be exploited remotely only if the
attacker has access to the service console network.
Security best practices provided by VMware recommend that the
service console be isolated from the VM network. Please see
http://www.vmware.com/resources/techresources/726 for more
information on VMware security best practices.

The currently installed versions of Tomcat and JRE depend
on your patch deployment history.
