The remote host has a virtualization application affected by a local
privilege escalation vulnerability.
The VMware Workstation installation detected on the remote host is
8.x earlier than 8.0.2 and thus is potentially affected by a local
privilege escalation vulnerability because the access control list of
the VMware Tools folder is incorrectly set.
By exploiting this issue, a local attacker could elevate his privileges
on Windows-based Guest Operating Systems.

Upgrade to VMware Workstation 8.0.2 or later.
In addition to patching, VMware Tools must be updated on all non-
Windows guest VMs in order to completely mitigate the
