VMware Fusion < 5.0.5 / 6.0.4 OpenSSL Library Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 76452


A VMware product installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of VMware Fusion installed on the remote Mac OS X is version 5.x prior to 5.0.5 or 6.x prior to 6.0.4. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities in the OpenSSL library :

- An error exists in the function 'ssl3_read_bytes' that could allow data to be injected into other sessions or allow denial of service attacks. Note this issue is only exploitable if 'SSL_MODE_RELEASE_BUFFERS' is enabled. (CVE-2010-5298)

- An error exists in the function 'do_ssl3_write' that could allow a NULL pointer to be dereferenced leading to denial of service attacks. Note this issue is exploitable only if 'SSL_MODE_RELEASE_BUFFERS' is enabled. (CVE-2014-0198)

- An unspecified error exists that could allow an attacker to cause usage of weak keying material leading to simplified man-in-the-middle attacks.

- An unspecified error exists related to anonymous ECDH ciphersuites that could allow denial of service attacks. Note this issue only affects OpenSSL TLS clients. (CVE-2014-3470)


Upgrade to VMware Fusion 5.0.5 / 6.0.4 or later.
