VMware Player 6.x < 6.0.6 RPC Command DoS (VMSA-2015-0004) (Linux)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote host has a virtualization application installed that is
affected by a denial of service vulnerability.

Description :

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.
