Description

The version of VMware Workstation installed on the remote host is earlier than 5.5.4, Build 44386. Such versions are reportedly affected by several issues, including a directory traversal issue in the application's Shared Folders feature that may allow read or write access from a guest to a host system, subject to the privileges of the user running VMware Workstation.
