The remote host has a virtualization application installed that is
affected by a denial of service vulnerability.
The version of VMware Workstation installed on the remote Linux host
is 10.x prior to 10.0.6. 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.
