VMware heeft onlangs versie 4.0.3 van zijn Player uitgebracht. VMware Player is gratis software waarmee virtuele machines kunnen worden gedraaid die gemaakt zijn met andere VMware-producten, zoals Workstation, Server en ESX Server. Ook de virtuele machines van Microsoft Virtual PC en Symantec LiveState Recovery-disks worden ondersteund. Daarnaast kunnen verschillende voorgeïnstalleerde, virtuele machines via deze pagina worden binnengehaald, zoals Debian, Ubuntu en Fedora. Versie 4.0 brengt diverse verbeteringen wat ondersteunde hardware betreft, maar daar staan wel verhoogde systeemeisen tegenover. In versie 4.0.3 zijn twee beveiligingsproblemen verholpen.



    Resolved Issues
    VMware floppy device out-of-bounds memory write

        Due to a flaw in the virtual floppy configuration it was possible to perform an out-of-bounds memory write. This vulnerability allowed a guest user to crash the VMX process or to potentially execute code on the host.
        The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2012-2449 to this issue.

    VMware SCSI device unchecked memory write

        Due to a flaw in the SCSI device registration it was possible to perform an unchecked write into memory. This vulnerability allowed a guest user to crash the VMX process or to potentially execute code on the host.
        The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2012-2450 to this issue.

    VMware Security Advisory VMSA-2012-0009 documents workarounds and mitigation for these two resolved issues.

    Known Issues
    VMware Tools Issues

        If you created a Windows Vista virtual machine in the Workstation 2011 Beta and try to update VMware Tools (VM > Update VMware Tools) in the virtual machine after upgrading to Workstation 8.0 or Player 4.0, the warning message "vmware-update-agent.exe has stopped working" appears. However, VMware Tools can still be upgraded successfully.
        Workaround: To prevent the warning message from occurring, remove VMware Update Agent from the Windows Vista Programs and Features list.

    Display and Input Issues

        On a Fedora 15 host, powering on a virtual machine that has DirectX 9 accelerated graphics enabled might fail with the error "Unable to change virtual machine power state: Cannot find a valid peer process to connect to."
        Workaround: Deselect the Accelerate 3D graphics setting (VM > Settings > Hardware > Display) to disable DirectX 9 accelerated graphics in the virtual machine.
        When you enter Unity mode in an Ubuntu 11.04 guest, application menus do not appear for applications that were opened before entering Unity mode. Application menus do appear for applications that are opened from the Unity launch menu after entering Unity mode.
        Workaround: Disable the APPMENU (Global menu) in the Ubuntu 11.04 guest. See the Ubuntu documentation for more information.

    Device Issues

        On Windows hosts, Player crashes if you click Connect or Disconnect in the Removable Devices menu before the console appears.
