Critical VMWare Security Advisory VMSA-2017-0004.3

If you use VMWare's DaaS, vCenter, vROps or Hyperic, right about now would be a good time to apply the latest patch for VMware Security Advisory VMSA-2017-0004.3, which allows for remote code execution and complete system compromise. Personally I wouldn't want to leave vCenter 6.0 or 6.5 unpatched right now.

As you can see, the vulnerability hits some of VMware’s most popular virtualization and virtual desktop products. Remote code execution vulnerabilities are generally must-patch issues as they can enable malicious parties to remotely take over and control a server.
