Synopsis :

A VMware product installed on the remote host is affected by a denial
of service vulnerability.

Description :

The version of VMware Fusion installed on the remote Mac OS X host is
version 6.x prior to 6.0.6 or 7.x prior to 7.0.1. It is, therefore,
affected by a denial of service vulnerability due to improper
validation of user-supplied input to a remote procedure call (RPC)
command. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a
crafted command, to crash the host or guest operating systems.
