Quote: A new ransomware named ‘Cheers’ has appeared in the cybercrime space and has started its operations by targeting vulnerable VMware ESXi servers.

Vulnerable??? Is there any real exploit they can use to get root access to the ESXi?

I agree. I’m hoping to see something from VMware about it soon.
