VMware Player and Workstation are prone to a remote denial-of-service vulnerability because the applications fail to perform adequate validation checks on user-supplied input.
An attacker can exploit this issue to crash the ‘vmware-authd’ process, denying service to legitimate users.
The following are reported vulnerable:
VMware Player 2.5.3 build 185404
VMware Workstation 6.5.3 build 185404
