New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9


A virtualization application installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of VMware Fusion installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is 10.x prior to 10.1.2. It is, therefore, missing a security update that fixes multiple flaws that allow local privilege escalation and multiple denial of service attacks.


Upgrade to VMware Fusion version 10.1.2 or later.
