                        VMware Security Advisory

Advisory ID: VMSA-2018-0012.1
Severity:    Moderate
Synopsis:    VMware vSphere, Workstation and Fusion updates enable
             Hypervisor-Assisted Guest Mitigations for Speculative Store
             Bypass issue
Issue date:  2018-05-21
Updated on:  2018-06-28
CVE number:  CVE-2018-3639

1. Summary

   VMware vSphere, Workstation and Fusion updates enable Hypervisor-
   Assisted Guest Mitigations for Speculative Store Bypass issue.

   The mitigations in this advisory are categorized as Hypervisor-
   Assisted Guest Mitigations described by VMware Knowledge Base article
   54951. KB54951 also covers CVE-2018-3640 mitigations which do not
   require VMware product updates.

2. Relevant Products

   VMware vCenter Server (VC)
   VMware vSphere ESXi (ESXi)
   VMware Workstation Pro / Player (Workstation)
   VMware Fusion Pro / Fusion (Fusion)

3. Problem Description

   vCenter Server, ESXi, Workstation, and Fusion update speculative
   execution control mechanism for Virtual Machines (VMs). As a result,
   a patched Guest Operating System (GOS) can remediate the Speculative
   Store bypass issue (CVE-2018-3639) using the Speculative-Store-
   Bypass-Disable (SSBD) control bit. This issue may allow for
   information disclosure in applications and/or execution runtimes
   which rely on managed code security mechanisms. Based on current
   evaluations, we do not believe that CVE-2018-3639 could allow for VM
   to VM or Hypervisor to VM Information disclosure.

   The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
   assigned the identifier CVE-2018-3639 to this issue.

   Column 5 of the following table lists the action required to
   remediate the vulnerability in each release, if a solution is
   available.
