The version of VMware Fusion installed on the remote Mac OS X is
version 5.x prior to 5.0.5 or 6.x prior to 6.0.4. It is, therefore,
affected by the following vulnerabilities in the 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)
- 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 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
ciphersuites that could allow denial of service
attacks. Note this issue only affects OpenSSL TLS
