VMware Workstation 14.x < 14.1.6 / 15.x < 15.0.3 Multiple Vulnerabilities (VMSA-2019-0006)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 124298

Synopsis

A virtualization application installed on the remote Windows host is affected by an uninitialized stack memory usage vulnerability.

Description

The version of VMware Workstation installed on the remote host is 14.x prior to 14.1.6 or 15.x prior to 15.0.3. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An out-of-bounds read vulnerability exists in the vertex shader component of the 3D-acceleration feature could allow an authenticated attacker to disclose sensitive information or cause a denial-of-service of the guest virtual machine. (CVE-2019-5516)

- An out-of-bounds read vulnerability exists in the shader translator component of the 3D-acceleration feature could allow an authenticated attacker to disclose sensitive information or cause a denial-of-service of the guest virtual machine. (CVE-2019-5517)

- An out-of-bounds read vulnerability in the 3D-acceleration feature could allow an authenticated attacker to disclose sensitive information.
(CVE-2019-5520)

Note virtual machines must be configured with the 3D-acceleration enabled. VMware Workstation defaults to this feature being enabled.

Solution

Upgrade to VMware Workstation version 14.1.6, 15.0.3, or later.
