The remote host has a virtualization application that is affected by a
denial of service vulnerability.
The installed version of VMware Player 5.x running on the remote Linux

denial of service vulnerability due to an issue with handling invalid
ports that could allow a guest user to crash the VMX process.
Update to VMware Player 5.0.1 or later.
