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.

    Product        Version  on         Apply Patch

    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<http://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.

    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.
