  1. Problem Description

a. VMware Tools Display Driver Privilege Escalation

  The VMware XPDM and WDDM display drivers contain buffer overflow
  vulnerabilities and the XPDM display driver does not properly
  check for NULL pointers. Exploitation of these issues may lead
  to local privilege escalation on Windows-based Guest Operating
  Systems.

  VMware would like to thank Tarjei Mandt for reporting theses
  issues to us.

  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
  has assigned the names CVE-2012-1509 (XPDM buffer overrun),
  CVE-2012-1510 (WDDM buffer overrun) and CVE-2012-1508 (XPDM null
  pointer dereference) to these issues.

  Note: CVE-2012-1509 doesn't affect ESXi and ESX.

  Column 4 of the following table lists the action required to
  remediate the vulnerability in each release, if a solution is
  available.

    ESX            3.5       ESX      not affected

    * Remediation for VMware View is described in VMSA-2012-0004.

    ** Notes on updating VMware Guest Tools:

    After the update or patch is applied, VMware Guest Tools must
    be updated in any pre-existing Windows-based Guest Operating
    System. The XPDM and WDDM drivers are part of Tools.

    Windows-Based Virtual Machines that have moved to Workstation
    8 or Player 4 from a lower version of Workstation or Player
    are affected unless:

        - They were moved from Workstation 7.1.5 or Player 3.1.5,

             AND

        - The Tools version was updated before the move.

    Windows-Based Virtual Machines that have moved to Fusion 4
    from a lower version of Fusion are affected.

b. vSphere Client internal browser input validation vulnerability

  The vSphere Client has an internal browser that renders html
  pages from log file entries. This browser doesn't properly
  sanitize input and may run script that is introduced into the
  log files. In order for the script to run, the user would need
  to open an individual, malicious log file entry. The script
  would run with the permissions of the user that runs the vSphere
  Client.

  VMware would like to thank Edward Torkington for reporting this
  issue to us.

  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
  has assigned the name CVE-2012-1512 to this issue.

  In order to remediate the issue, the vSphere Client of the
  vSphere 5.0 Update 1 release or the vSphere 4.1 Update 2 release
  needs to be installed. The vSphere Clients that come with
  vSphere 4.0 and vCenter Server 2.5 are not affected.

c. vCenter Orchestrator Password Disclosure

  The vCenter Orchestrator (vCO) Web Configuration tool reflects
  back the vCenter Server password as part of the webpage. This
  might allow the logged-in vCO administrator to retrieve the
  vCenter Server password.

  VMware would like to thank Alexey Sintsov from Digital Security
  Research Group for reporting this issue to us.

  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
  has assigned the name CVE-2012-1513 to this issue.

    VMware         Product  Running    Replace with/
    Product        Version  on         Apply Patch
    =============  =======  =======    =================
    vCO            4.2      Windows    vCO 4.2 Update 1
    vCO            4.1      Windows    vCO 4.1 Update 2
    vCO            4.0      Windows    vCO 4.0 Update 4

d. vShield Manager Cross-Site Request Forgery vulnerability

  The vShield Manager (vSM) interface has a Cross-Site Request
  Forgery vulnerability. If an attacker can convince an
  authenticated user to visit a malicious link, the attacker may
  force the victim to forward an authenticated request to the
  server.

  VMware would like to thank Frans Pehrson of Xxor AB
  (www.xxor.se) and Claudio Criscione for independently reporting
  this issue to us

  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
  has assigned the name CVE-2012-1514 to this issue.

    VMware         Product  Running    Replace with/

    vSM            4.0      Linux      vSM 1.0.1 Update 2

e. vCenter Update Manager, Oracle (Sun) JRE update 1.6.0_30

  Oracle (Sun) JRE is updated to version 1.6.0_30, which addresses
  multiple security issues that existed in earlier releases of
  Oracle (Sun) JRE.

  Oracle has documented the CVE identifiers that are addressed in
  JRE 1.6.0_29 and JRE 1.6.0_30 in the Oracle Java SE Critical
  Patch Update Advisory of October 2011. The References section
