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: 6.5


A virtualization application installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is affected by an out-of-bounds write vulnerability.


The version of VMware Fusion installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is 10.x prior to 10.1.3. It is, therefore, missing a security update that fixes an out-of-bounds write vulnerability.


Upgrade to VMware Fusion version 10.1.3 or later.
