VMware View Server Unsupported Version Detection

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 63683


The remote host is running an unsupported version of a virtual desktop solution.


According to its version, the installation of VMware View Server, formerly known as VMware Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, 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 View Server that is currently supported.
