VMware Fusion Unsupported Version Detection

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 55851


An unsupported version of virtualization software is installed on the remote host.


According to its self-reported version number, the installation of VMware Fusion on the remote host is no longer supported.

Lack of support implies that no new security patches for the product will be released by the vendor. As a result, it is likely to contain security vulnerabilities.


Upgrade to a version of VMware Fusion that is currently supported.
