|CVSS SCORE||2.8, (AV:L/AC:H/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:L/I:N/A:N)|
This vulnerability allows local attackers to disclose sensitive information on vulnerable installations of VMware Workstation. An attacker must first obtain the ability to execute low-privileged code on the target guest system in order to exploit this vulnerability.
The specific flaw exists within the parsing of shader bytecode. By manipulating a document's elements, an attacker can trigger a read past the end of an allocated array. An attacker can leverage this in conjunction with other vulnerabilities to execute code in the context of the hypervisor.
VMware has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can be found at:
