DescriptionVMware ESXi (6.7 before ESXi670-201908101-SG and 6.5 before ESXi650-201910401-SG), Workstation (15.x before 15.5.0) and Fusion (11.x before 11.5.0) contain a denial-of-service vulnerability in the shader functionality. Successful exploitation of this issue may allow attackers with normal user privileges to create a denial-of-service condition on their own VM. Exploitation of this issue require an attacker to have access to a virtual machine with 3D graphics enabled. It is not enabled by default on ESXi and is enabled by default on Workstation and Fusion.
SolutionUpdate to VMware Workstation version 15.5.0, or later.
