The remote host contains a virtualization application that is affected
by multiple vulnerabilities.
The version of VMware Fusion installed on the remote Mac OS X host is
version 6.x prior to 6.0.5 or version 7.x prior to 7.0.1. It is,
therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- An unspecified flaw exists that allows a local attacker
to escalate privileges or cause a denial of service
via an arbitrary write to a file. (CVE-2014-8370)
- An input validation error exists in the Host Guest File
System (HGFS) that allows a local attacker to cause a
denial of service of the guest operating system.
