A virtualization application installed on the remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities


The version of VMware Workstation installed on the remote host is 17.0.x prior to 17.0.2. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Update to VMware Workstation version 17.0.2, or later.
