3. Problem Description

   a. VMware Tools Display Driver Privilege Escalation

      The VMware XPDM and WDDM display drivers contain buffer overflow
      vulnerabilities and the XPDM display driver does not properly
      check for NULL pointers. Exploitation of these issues may lead
      to local privilege escalation on Windows-based Guest Operating
      Systems.

      VMware would like to thank Tarjei Mandt for reporting theses
      issues to us.

      The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
      has assigned the names CVE-2012-1509 (XPDM buffer overrun),
      CVE-2012-1510 (WDDM buffer overrun) and CVE-2012-1508 (XPDM null
      pointer dereference) to these issues.

      Note: CVE-2012-1509 doesn't affect ESXi and ESX.

      Column 4 of the following table lists the action required to
      remediate the vulnerability in each release, if a solution is
      available.

        * Remediation for VMware View is described in VMSA-2012-0004.

        ** Notes on updating VMware Guest Tools:

        After the update or patch is applied, VMware Guest Tools must
        be updated in any pre-existing Windows-based Guest Operating
        System. The XPDM and WDDM drivers are part of Tools.

        Windows-Based Virtual Machines that have moved to Workstation
        8 or Player 4 from a lower version of Workstation or Player
        are affected unless:

            - They were moved from Workstation 7.1.5 or Player 3.1.5,

                 AND

            - The Tools version was updated before the move.

        Windows-Based Virtual Machines that have moved to Fusion 4
        from a lower version of Fusion are affected.

   b. vSphere Client internal browser input validation vulnerability

      The vSphere Client has an internal browser that renders html
      pages from log file entries. This browser doesn't properly
      sanitize input and may run script that is introduced into the
      log files. In order for the script to run, the user would need
      to open an individual, malicious log file entry. The script
      would run with the permissions of the user that runs the vSphere
      Client.

      VMware would like to thank Edward Torkington for reporting this
      issue to us.

      The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
      has assigned the name CVE-2012-1512 to this issue.

      In order to remediate the issue, the vSphere Client of the
      vSphere 5.0 Update 1 release or the vSphere 4.1 Update 2 release
      needs to be installed. The vSphere Clients that come with
      vSphere 4.0 and vCenter Server 2.5 are not affected.

   c. vCenter Orchestrator Password Disclosure

      The vCenter Orchestrator (vCO) Web Configuration tool reflects
      back the vCenter Server password as part of the webpage. This
      might allow the logged-in vCO administrator to retrieve the
      vCenter Server password.

      VMware would like to thank Alexey Sintsov from Digital Security
      Research Group for reporting this issue to us.

      The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
      has assigned the name CVE-2012-1513 to this issue.

        VMware         Product  Running    Replace with/
        Product        Version  on         Apply Patch
        =============  =======  =======    =================
        vCO            4.2      Windows    vCO 4.2 Update 1
        vCO            4.1      Windows    vCO 4.1 Update 2
        vCO            4.0      Windows    vCO 4.0 Update 4

   d. vShield Manager Cross-Site Request Forgery vulnerability

      The vShield Manager (vSM) interface has a Cross-Site Request
      Forgery vulnerability. If an attacker can convince an
      authenticated user to visit a malicious link, the attacker may
      force the victim to forward an authenticated request to the
      server.

      VMware would like to thank Frans Pehrson of Xxor AB
      (www.xxor.se) and Claudio Criscione for independently reporting
      this issue to us

      The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
      has assigned the name CVE-2012-1514 to this issue.

        VMware         Product  Running    Replace with/
        Product        Version  on         Apply Patch
        =============  =======  =======    =================

        vSM            4.0      Linux      vSM 1.0.1 Update 2

   e. vCenter Update Manager, Oracle (Sun) JRE update 1.6.0_30

      Oracle (Sun) JRE is updated to version 1.6.0_30, which addresses
      multiple security issues that existed in earlier releases of
      Oracle (Sun) JRE.

      JRE 1.6.0_29 and JRE 1.6.0_30 in the Oracle Java SE Critical
      Patch Update Advisory of October 2011. The References section
      provides a link to this advisory.
