Detail

a. Fusion signature bypass vulnerability

VMware Fusion contains a signature bypass vulnerability which may lead to a local privilege escalation.

VMware would like to thank CodeColorist of AntFinancial LightYear Security Labs for reporting this issue to us.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the identifier CVE-2018-6962 to this issue.

Column 5 of the following table lists the action required to remediate the vulnerability in each release, if a solution is available.

b. Workstation and Fusion multiple Denial-of-service vulnerabilities
