Synopsis :

The remote host contains software that is affected by multiple
vulnerabilities.

Description :

The installed version of VMware Player 6.x running on Windows is
earlier than 6.0.2. It is, therefore, reportedly affected by the
following vulnerabilities in the OpenSSL library :

- An error exists related to the implementation of the
Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) that
could allow nonce disclosure via the 'FLUSH+RELOAD'
cache side-channel attack. (CVE-2014-0076)

- An out-of-bounds read error, known as the 'Heartbleed
Bug', exists related to handling TLS heartbeat
extensions that could allow an attacker to obtain
sensitive information such as primary key material,
secondary key material and other protected content.
(CVE-2014-0160)
