Description

About This Update:
Player 4.0.4 addresses the following issues:

  • Input data was not properly validated when loading Checkpoint files. This issue could have allowed an attacker with the ability to load a specially crafted Checkpoint file to execute arbitrary code on the host.
  • A device (such as CD-ROM or 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 was incorrectly handled. This issue could have allowed an attacker who was capable of manipulating the traffic from a remote virtual device to crash the virtual machine.
  • Important Notes:

  • VMware, Inc. has identified several known issues that may cause update installations to fail; please see VMware's documentation about this update for more information.
  • This update must be installed manually by a user with administrative rights.
  • The 'VMware-player-4.0.4-744019.exe' will be located in the System temp directory (i.e. 'C:\Windows\Temp') upon deployment.
