The remote host has a virtualization application installed that is
affected by a denial of service vulnerability.
The version of VMware Player installed on the remote Linux host is 6.x
prior to 6.0.6. 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.
