Background ========== VMware Player, Server, and Workstation allow emulation of a complete PC on a PC without the usual performance overhead of most emulators. Affected packages ================= ------------------------------------------------------------------- Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected ------------------------------------------------------------------- 1 app-emulation/vmware-player <= 2.5.5.328052 Vulnerable! 2 app-emulation/vmware-workstation <= 6.5.5.328052 Vulnerable! 3 app-emulation/vmware-server <= 1.0.9.156507 Vulnerable! ------------------------------------------------------------------- NOTE: Certain packages are still vulnerable. Users should migrate to another package if one is available or wait for the existing packages to be marked stable by their architecture maintainers. ------------------------------------------------------------------- 3 affected packages Description =========== Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in VMware Player, Server, and Workstation. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details. Impact ====== Local users may be able to gain escalated privileges, cause a Denial of Service, or gain sensitive information. 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. 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). Workaround ========== There is no known workaround at this time. Resolution ========== Gentoo discontinued support for VMware Player. We recommend that users unmerge VMware Player: # emerge --unmerge "app-emulation/vmware-player" NOTE: Users could upgrade to ">=app-emulation/vmware-player-3.1.5", however these packages are not currently stable. Gentoo discontinued support for VMware Workstation. We recommend that users unmerge VMware Workstation: # emerge --unmerge "app-emulation/vmware-workstation" NOTE: Users could upgrade to ">=app-emulation/vmware-workstation-7.1.5", however these packages are not currently stable. Gentoo discontinued support for VMware Server. We recommend that users unmerge VMware Server: # emerge --unmerge "app-emulation/vmware-server" References ========== [ 1 ] CVE-2007-5269 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2007-5269 [ 2 ] CVE-2007-5503 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2007-5503 [ 3 ] CVE-2007-5671 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2007-5671 [ 4 ] CVE-2008-0967 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2008-0967 [ 5 ] CVE-2008-1340 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2008-1340 [ 6 ] CVE-2008-1361 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2008-1361 [ 7 ] CVE-2008-1362 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2008-1362 [ 8 ] CVE-2008-1363 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2008-1363 [ 9 ] CVE-2008-1364 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2008-1364 [ 10 ] CVE-2008-1392 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2008-1392 [ 11 ] CVE-2008-1447 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2008-1447 [ 12 ] CVE-2008-1806 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2008-1806 [ 13 ] CVE-2008-1807 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2008-1807 [ 14 ] CVE-2008-1808 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2008-1808 [ 15 ] CVE-2008-2098 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2008-2098 [ 16 ] CVE-2008-2100 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2008-2100 [ 17 ] CVE-2008-2101 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2008-2101 [ 18 ] CVE-2008-4915 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2008-4915 [ 19 ] CVE-2008-4916 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2008-4916 [ 20 ] CVE-2008-4917 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2008-4917 [ 21 ] CVE-2009-0040 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2009-0040 [ 22 ] CVE-2009-0909 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2009-0909 [ 23 ] CVE-2009-0910 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2009-0910 [ 24 ] CVE-2009-1244 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2009-1244 [ 25 ] CVE-2009-2267 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2009-2267 [ 26 ] CVE-2009-3707 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2009-3707 [ 27 ] CVE-2009-3732 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2009-3732 [ 28 ] CVE-2009-3733 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2009-3733 [ 29 ] CVE-2009-4811 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2009-4811 [ 30 ] CVE-2010-1137 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2010-1137 [ 31 ] CVE-2010-1138 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2010-1138 [ 32 ] CVE-2010-1139 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2010-1139 [ 33 ] CVE-2010-1140 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2010-1140 [ 34 ] CVE-2010-1141 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2010-1141 [ 35 ] CVE-2010-1142 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2010-1142 [ 36 ] CVE-2010-1143 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2010-1143 [ 37 ] CVE-2011-3868 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2011-3868 Availability ============ This GLSA and any updates to it are available for viewing at the Gentoo Security Website: http://security.gentoo.org/glsa/glsa-201209-25.xml Concerns? ========= Security is a primary focus of Gentoo Linux and ensuring the confidentiality and security of our users' machines is of utmost importance to us.
