VMware Player 6.x < 6.0.2 OpenSSL Library Multiple Vulnerabilities (VMSA-2014-0004) (Heartbleed)

High Nessus Plugin ID 73672


The remote host contains software that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The installed version of VMware Player 6.x running on Windows is earlier than 6.0.2. It is, therefore, reportedly affected by the following vulnerabilities in the OpenSSL library :

- An error exists related to the implementation of the Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) that could allow nonce disclosure via the 'FLUSH+RELOAD' cache side-channel attack. (CVE-2014-0076)

- An out-of-bounds read error, known as the 'Heartbleed Bug', exists related to handling TLS heartbeat extensions that could allow an attacker to obtain sensitive information such as primary key material, secondary key material and other protected content.


Update to VMware Player 6.0.2 or later.
