VMWare has closed vulnerabilities CVE-2021-22040, CVE-2021-22041, CVE-2021-22042, CVE-2021-22043, CVE-2021-22050 in VMWare ESXi and other products and is providing updates. ESXi versions from 6.5 are affected.

The criticality of the individual vulnerabilities is rated medium or high; combinations of vulnerabilities are considered critical by VMWare: VMWare Security Advisory

The ESXi systems supplied by VIVAVIS are operated in a secure network segment that is separated from the Internet. For this reason, we classify the threat situation in the system environment as not critical and do not see any urgent need for action, but generally recommend installing the available security updates.
