VMware Workstation 10.x < 10.0.6 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 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.
