The vCenter VAMI service must explicitly disable Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) mime mappings based on "Content-Type".
Controlling what a user of a hosted application can access is part of the security posture of the web server. Any time a user can access more functionality than is needed for the operation of the hosted application poses a security issue. A user with too much access can view information that is not needed for the user's job role, or the user could use the function in an unintentional manner.
A MIME tells the web server what type of program various file types and extensions are and what external utilities or programs are needed to execute the file type. A limited number of MIME types must be configured manually, and automatic mapping must be disabled.
If the output does not match the expected result, this is a finding.
Note: The command must be run from a bash shell and not from a shell generated by the "appliance shell". Use the "chsh" command to change the shell for the account to "/bin/bash". Refer to KB Article 2100508 for more details:
