Synopsis :

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

Description :

The version of VMware Player installed on the remote Windows host is
7.x prior to 7.1.1. It is, therefore, affected by multiple
vulnerabilities :

- An arbitrary code execution vulnerability exists due to
a stack-based buffer overflow condition in the JPEG2000
plugin that is triggered when parsing a Quantization
Default (QCD) marker segment in a JPEG2000 (JP2) image
file. A remote attacker can exploit this, using a
specially crafted image, to execute arbitrary code or
cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2012-0897)

- Multiple unspecified remote code execution
vulnerabilities exists in 'TPView.dll' and 'TPInt.dll'
library files. (CVE-2015-2336, CVE-2015-2337)

- The 'TPview.dll' and 'TPInt.dll' library files fail to
properly handle memory allocation. A remote attacker can
exploit this to cause a denial of service.
(CVE-2015-2338, CVE-2015-2339, CVE-2015-2340)
