  <title>VMware Player, Server, Workstation: Multiple vulnerabilities</title>
  <synopsis>Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in VMware Player, Server,
    and Workstation, allowing remote and local attackers to conduct several
    attacks, including privilege escalation, remote execution of arbitrary
    code, and a Denial of Service.

    <p>VMware Player, Server, and Workstation allow emulation of a complete PC
      on a PC without the usual performance overhead of most emulators.

  <description>
    <p>Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in VMware Player, Server,
      and Workstation. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for
      details.
    </p>
  </description>
  <impact type="high">
    <p>Local users may be able to gain escalated privileges, cause a Denial of
      Service, or gain sensitive information. 
    </p>
    
    <p>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. 
    </p>
    
    <p>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).
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>Gentoo discontinued support for VMware Player. We recommend that users
      unmerge VMware Player:
    </p>
    
    <code>
      # emerge --unmerge "app-emulation/vmware-player"
    </code>
    
    <p>NOTE: Users could upgrade to
      “&gt;=app-emulation/vmware-player-3.1.5”, however these packages are
      not currently stable.
    </p>
    
    <p>Gentoo discontinued support for VMware Workstation. We recommend that
      users unmerge VMware Workstation:
    </p>
    
    <code>
      # emerge --unmerge "app-emulation/vmware-workstation"
    </code>
