appliance update: common info

The common_info structure defines common update information




Name Type Description
description localizable_message Description of the update. The short information what this update is. E.g. "Update2 for vCenter Server Appliance 6.5"

priority string Update priority

Defines the update installation priority recommendations. Value is one of:
HIGH: Install ASAP
MEDIUM: Install at the earliest convenience
LOW: Install at your discretion

severity string Update severity

Defines the severity of the issues fixed in the update. Value is one of:
CRITICAL: Vulnerabilities that can be exploited by an unauthenticated attacker from the Internet or those that break the guest/host Operating System isolation. The exploitation results in the complete compromise of confidentiality, integrity, and availability of user data and/or processing resources without user interaction. Exploitation could be leveraged to propagate an Internet worm or execute arbitrary code between Virtual Machines and/or the Host Operating System.
IMPORTANT: Vulnerabilities that are not rated critical but whose exploitation results in the complete compromise of confidentiality and/or integrity of user data and/or processing resources through user assistance or by authenticated attackers. This rating also applies to those vulnerabilities which could lead to the complete compromise of availability when exploitation is by a remote unauthenticated attacker from the Internet or through a breach of virtual machine isolation.
MODERATE: Vulnerabilities where the ability to exploit is mitigated to a significant degree by configuration or difficulty of exploitation, but in certain deployment scenarios could still lead to the compromise of confidentiality, integrity, or availability of user data and/or processing resources.
LOW: All other issues that have a security impact. Vulnerabilities where exploitation is believed to be extremely difficult, or where successful exploitation would have minimal impact
