VMware delivers emergency patch for disaster recovery tool

Cloud computing and software giant VMware has patched a vulnerability in its disaster recovery software that allowed exploiters lateral movement across the target network, as well as arbitrary code execution on the server, with maximum privileges.

The VMware vSphere Replication is a data replication tool used to create backups of virtual machines – typically in an (unlikely) case of the main virtual machine misbehaving or reporting a failure.
