VMware Workstation 10.x < 10.0.6 RPC Command DoS (VMSA-2015-0004) (Linux)

High Nessus Plugin ID 84222

Synopsis

The remote host has a virtualization application installed that is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.

Description

The version of VMware Workstation installed on the remote Linux host is 10.x prior to 10.0.6. 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.

Solution

Upgrade to VMware Workstation version 10.0.6 or later.
