The remote host contains software with a known, local privilege
The installed version of VMware Player 5.x running on Windows is
earlier than 5.0.3. It therefore reportedly contains a vulnerability in
its handling in the LGTOSYNC.SYS driver. This issue could allow a
local, malicious user to escalate privileges on 32-bit Guest Operating
Systems running Windows XP.
Note that by exploiting this issue, a local attacker could elevate his
privileges only on the Guest OS and not on the host.
