The remote host contains a virtualization application that is affected
by multiple vulnerabilities.
The version of VMware Workstation installed on the remote host is
version 10.x prior to 10.0.5. 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.
- An input validation error exists in the VMware
Authorization process (vmware-authd) that allows a
remote attacker to cause a denial of service of the host
operating system. (CVE-2015-1044)
