The remote Mac OS X host has a virtual desktop solution that is
affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
The version of VMware Horizon View Client installed on the remote Mac
OS X host is a version prior to 3.0.0. It is, therefore, affected by
multiple vulnerabilities in the bundled OpenSSL library :
- An error exists in the function 'ssl3_read_bytes'
that could allow data to be injected into other
sessions or allow denial of service attacks. Note
this issue is only exploitable if
'SSL_MODE_RELEASE_BUFFERS' is enabled. (CVE-2010-5298)
- A buffer overflow error exists related to invalid DTLS
fragment handling that could lead to execution of
arbitrary code. Note this issue only affects OpenSSL
when used as a DTLS client or server. (CVE-2014-0195)
- An error exists in the function 'do_ssl3_write' that
could allow a NULL pointer to be dereferenced leading
to denial of service attacks. Note this issue is
exploitable only if 'SSL_MODE_RELEASE_BUFFERS' is
- An error exists related to DTLS handshake handling that
could lead to denial of service attacks. Note this
issue only affects OpenSSL when used as a DTLS client.
- An unspecified error exists that could allow an
attacker to cause usage of weak keying material
leading to simplified man-in-the-middle attacks.
- An unspecified error exists related to anonymous ECDH
cipher suites that could allow denial of service
attacks. Note this issue only affects OpenSSL TLS
