High Nessus Plugin ID 73673

Synopsis

The remote host has a virtualization application that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The installed version of VMware Workstation 10.x is prior to 10.0.2.
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.
(CVE-2014-0160)

Solution

Update to VMware Workstation 10.0.2 or later.
