Description

The version of VMware Workstation installed on the remote Windows host is 12.x prior to 12.5.8. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities that can allow code execution in a virtual machine via the authenticated VNC session as well as cause information disclosure from one virtual machine to another virtual machine on the same host.
