VMware Player 6.x < 6.0.6 RPC Command DoS (VMSA-2015-0004) (Linux)
High Nessus Plugin ID 84221
SynopsisThe remote host has a virtualization application installed that is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of VMware Player installed on the remote Linux host is 6.x prior to 6.0.6. It is, therefore, affected by a denial of service vulnerability due to improper validation of user-supplied input to a remote procedure call (RPC) command. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted command, to crash the host or guest operating systems.
SolutionUpgrade to VMware Player version 6.0.6 or later.
