VMware has released fixes for multiple vulnerabilities in several of its products, including VMware Workstation, Player, ACE, Server, Fusion, ESX and ESXi. One of the vulnerabilities was caused by an error in the VMware Descheduled Time Accounting driver, which could open a way for hackers to launch a denial-of-service attack in Windows-based virtual machines. Another vulnerability identified by VMware could have enabled an attacker to execute arbitrary code. — CAM
