Description

The version of VMware Workstation installed on the remote Windows host is 10.x prior to 10.0.5. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

  • An unspecified flaw exists that allows a local attacker to escalate privileges or cause a denial of service via an arbitrary write to a file. (CVE-2014-8370)

  • An input validation error exists in the Host Guest File System (HGFS) that allows a local attacker to cause a denial of service of the guest operating system. (CVE-2015-1043)

  • An input validation error exists in the VMware Authorization process (vmware-authd) that allows a remote attacker to cause a denial of service of the host operating system. (CVE-2015-1044)

  • A denial of service vulnerability exists due to improper validation of user-supplied input to a remote procedure call (RPC) command. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted command, to crash the host or guest operating systems. (CVE-2015-2341)
