The remote host has a virtualization application that is affected by a
privilege escalation vulnerability.
The version of VMware Fusion 5.x installed on the remote Mac OS X host
is prior to 5.0.4. It is, therefore, reportedly affected by a privilege
escalation vulnerability in the LGTOSYNC.SYS driver 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 Operating System and not on the host.
Upgrade to VMware Fusion 5.0.4 or later.
