3. Problem Description

a. VMware Host Checkpoint file memory corruption

   Input data is not properly validated when loading Checkpoint files.
   This may allow an attacker with the ability to load a specially
   crafted Checkpoint file to execute arbitrary code on the host.

   Workaround
   - None identified

   Mitigation
   - Do not import virtual machines from untrusted sources.

   The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
   has assigned the name CVE-2012-3288 to this issue.

   Column 4 of the following table lists the action required to
   remediate the vulnerability in each release, if a solution is
   available.

b. VMware Virtual Machine Remote Device Denial of Service

   A device (e.g. CD-ROM, keyboard) that is available to a virtual
   machine while physically connected to a system that does not run the
   virtual machine is referred to as a remote device.

   Traffic coming from remote virtual devices is incorrectly handled.
   This may allow an attacker who is capable of manipulating the
   traffic from a remote virtual device to crash the virtual machine.

   Workaround
   - None identified

   Mitigation
   - Users need administrative privileges on the virtual machine
     in order to attach remote devices.
   - Do not attach untrusted remote devices to a virtual machine.

   The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
   has assigned the name CVE-2012-3289 to this issue.

   Column 4 of the following table lists the action required to
   remediate the vulnerability in each release, if a solution is
   available.
