VMware Workstation: VMware Workstation and Player Weak permissions on process threads vulnerability (VMSA-2012-0015) (CVE-2012-5458)
VMware Workstation 8.x before 8.0.5 and VMware Player 4.x before 4.0.5 on Windows use weak permissions for unspecified process threads, which allows host OS users to gain host OS privileges via a crafted application.
With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
