Dell EMC ViPR Controller contains fixes for an information exposure 
vulnerability in the configuration of Virtual Router Redundacy Protocol (VRRP) 
that could potentially be exploited by malicious users to compromise the 
affected system. 

Dell EMC ViPR Controller, versions after, contain an information 
exposure vulnerability in the VRRP.  VRRP defaults to an insecure configuration 
in Linux's keepalived component which sends the cluster password in plaintext 
through multicast. A malicious user, having access to the vCloud subnet where 
ViPR is deployed, could potentially sniff the password and use it to take over 
the cluster's virtual IP and cause a denial of service on that ViPR Controller
