Description

The installer in VMware Workstation 7.x before 7.1.2 build 301548 and VMware Player 3.x before 3.1.2 build 301548 renders an index.htm file if present in the installation directory, which might allow local users to trigger unintended interpretation of web script or HTML by creating this file.
