The remote host has a virtualization application that is affected by a
denial of service vulnerability.
The version of VMware Fusion 5.x installed on the remote Mac OS X host
is prior to 5.0.1. It is, therefore, reportedly affected by a denial of
service vulnerability due to an issue with handling invalid ports that
could allow a guest user to crash the VMX process.
Upgrade to VMware Fusion 5.0.1 or later.
