VMware Workstation < 9.0.4 / 10.0.3 OpenSSL Library Multiple Vulnerabilities (Linux)

This script is Copyright (C) 2014-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote host has a virtualization application that is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of VMware Workstation installed on the remote host is
version 9.x prior to 9.0.4 or 10.x prior to 10.0.3. 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
enabled. (CVE-2014-0198)

- An unspecified error exists that could allow an
attacker to cause usage of weak keying material
leading to simplified man-in-the-middle attacks.
(CVE-2014-0224)

- An unspecified error exists related to anonymous ECDH
ciphersuites that could allow denial of service
attacks. Note this issue only affects OpenSSL TLS
clients. (CVE-2014-3470)
