VMware multiple products Virtual Machine Communication Interface (VMCI) denial of service
|vmware-vmci-dos (41250)||Medium Risk|
Multiple VMware products are vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a memory corruption error in the Virtual Machine Communication Interface (VMCI). By sending a specially-crafted call to the VMCI interface, a local authenticated attacker could crash the host system.
