VMware Workstation 10.x < 10.0.5 Multiple Vulnerabilities (VMSA-2015-0001 / VMSA-2015-0004) (Windows)
High Nessus Plugin ID 81187
SynopsisThe remote host has a virtualization application installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe 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.
- 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)
SolutionUpgrade to VMware Workstation version 10.0.5 or later.
