> escalated privileges or cause a DoS (Denial of Service) or by
> malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

> 1) An unspecified error can be exploited by a user with
> administrative privileges in the guest system to cause a memory
> corruption on a certain host process.
>
> Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code on the
> host system.
>
> 2) An unspecified error can be exploited within the guest system to
> cause a host process to crash.
>
> The vulnerabilities affect VMWare ESX 3.0.1, 3.0.0, 2.5.4, 2.5.3,
> 2.1.3, and 2.0.2, VMWare Workstation 6.0.0 and 5.5.4, VMWare Player

> packet.
>
> 4) An integer overflow error in the DHCP server can be exploited to
> cause a stack-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted DHCP
> packet.
>
> 5) Improper handling of malformed DHCP packets can be exploited to
> execute arbitrary code via a specially crafted DHCP packet.
>
> Successful exploitation of the vulnerabilities allow execution of
> arbitrary code.
