Status Candidate

Overview

The CPU hardware emulation for 64-bit guest operating systems in VMware Workstation 6.0.x before 6.0.5 build 109488 and 5.x before 5.5.8 build 108000; Player 2.0.x before 2.0.5 build 109488 and 1.x before 1.0.8; Server 1.x before 1.0.7 build 108231; and ESX 2.5.4 through 3.5 allows authenticated guest OS users to gain additional guest OS privileges by triggering an exception that causes the virtual CPU to perform an indirect jump to a non-canonical address.

By exploiting either of the VMware flaws described in this document, user-mode code executing in a virtual machine may gain kernel privileges within the virtual machine, dependent upon the guest operating system. The flaws have been proven exploitable on x64 versions of Windows, and they have produced potentially exploitable crashes on x64 versions of *BSD. The Linux kernel does not allow exploitation of these flaws on x64 versions of Linux.
