Barco wePresent Undocumented SSH Interface

Barco wePresent WiPG-1600W version has an SSH daemon included in the firmware image. By default, the SSH daemon is disabled and does not start at system boot. The system initialization scripts read a device configuration file variable to see if the SSH daemon should be started. The web interface does not provide a visible capability to alter this configuration…

Barco wePresent Authentication Bypass

The Barco wePresent WiPG-1600W version web interface does not use session cookies for tracking authenticated sessions. Instead, the web interface uses a “SEID” token that is appended to the end of URLs in GET requests. Thus the “SEID” would be exposed in web proxy logs and browser history. An attacker that is able to capture the “SEID” and originate…


VMware ESXi (7.0 before ESXi70U1b-17168206, 6.7 before ESXi670-202011101-SG, 6.5 before ESXi650-202011301-SG) contains a privilege-escalation vulnerability that exists in the way certain system calls are being managed. A malicious actor with privileges within the VMX process only, may escalate their privileges on the affected system. Successful exploitation of this issue is only possible when chained with another vulnerability (e.g. CVE-2020-4004)


VMware ESXi (7.0 before ESXi70U1b-17168206, 6.7 before ESXi670-202011101-SG, 6.5 before ESXi650-202011301-SG), Workstation (15.x before 15.5.7), Fusion (11.x before 11.5.7) contain a use-after-free vulnerability in the XHCI USB controller. A malicious actor with local administrative privileges on a virtual machine may exploit this issue to execute code as the virtual machine’s VMX process running on the host.
