VMware Tools 11.x / 12.x < 12.1.0 Privilege Escalation (VMSA-2022-0024)

Description

The version of VMware Tools installed on the remote Windows host is affected by a privilege escalation vulnerability. A malicious actor with local non-administrative access to the Guest OS can escalate privileges as a root user in the virtual machine. Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
