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.
