The remote host contains software with a known, local privilege
The installed version of VMware Player 5.x running on Linux is earlier
than 5.0.3. It therefore reportedly contains a vulnerability in its
handling of shared libraries. This issue may allow a local, malicious
user to escalate privileges to root on the host.
Update to VMware Player 5.0.3 or later.
