Description

The version of VMware Horizon View Client installed on the remote host is 4.x prior to 4.8.1. It is, therefore, affected by an unspecified information disclosure vulnerability related to the Message Framework library.

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
