VMWare Detection

Low

Synopsis

The remote host passes information across the network in an insecure manner.

Description

The remote host is running VMWare, an application that allows users to run multiple operating systems virtually. VMWare passes the license key in plaintext across the Internet. As such, a license key was detected.

Solution

Disable automatic updates and only use encrypted sessions to update VMWare software.
