The remote host has a virtualization application that is affected
by multiple vulnerabilities.
The VMware Player install detected on the remote host is 3.x earlier
than 3.1.6, or 4.0.x, earlier than 4.0.4 and is, therefore, potentially
affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- A memory corruption error exists related to the
handling of 'Checkpoint' files that can allow arbitrary
code execution. (CVE-2012-3288)
- An error exists related to handling traffic from
remote physical devices, e.g. CD-ROM or mouse that
can cause the virtual machine to crash. Note that this
issue affects only the 4.x branch. (CVE-2012-3289)
