    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201209-25 (VMware Player, Server, Workstation: Multiple vulnerabilities) Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in VMware Player, Server, and Workstation. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details. Impact : Local users may be able to gain escalated privileges, cause a Denial of Service, or gain sensitive information. A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted file, possibly resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary code, or a Denial of Service. Remote attackers also may be able to spoof DNS traffic, read arbitrary files, or inject arbitrary web script to the VMware Server Console. Furthermore, guest OS users may be able to execute arbitrary code on the host OS, gain escalated privileges on the guest OS, or cause a Denial of Service (crash the host OS). Workaround : There is no known workaround at this time.

  • NASL family VMware ESX Local Security Checks
    NASL id VMWARE_VMSA-2009-0015.NASL
    description a. Mishandled exception on page faults An improper setting of the exception code on page faults may allow for local privilege escalation on the guest operating system. This vulnerability does not affect the host system. VMware would like to thank Tavis Ormandy and Julien Tinnes of the Google Security Team for reporting this issue to us. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-2267 to this issue. b. Directory Traversal vulnerability A directory traversal vulnerability allows for remote retrieval of any file from the host system. In order to send a malicious request, the attacker will need to have access to the network on which the host resides. VMware would like to thank Justin Morehouse and Jason Kratzer for independently reporting this issue to us. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-3733 to this issue.
