out-of-bounds read vulnerabilities.


VMware Security Advisory Advisory ID: VMSA-2019-0006
VMware Security Advisory Severity: Important
VMware Security Advisory Synopsis: VMware ESXi, Workstation and Fusion updates 
  address multiple out-of-bounds read vulnerabilities.
VMware Security Advisory Issue date: 2019-04-11
VMware Security Advisory Updated on: 2019-04-11 (Initial Advisory)
VMware Security Advisory CVE numbers: CVE-2019-5516, CVE-2019-5517, CVE-2019-5520


1. Summary

VMware ESXi, Workstation and Fusion updates address multiple out-of-bounds read
vulnerabilities.

2. Relevant Products

  o VMware vSphere ESXi (ESXi)
  o VMware Workstation Pro / Player (Workstation)
  o VMware Fusion Pro / Fusion (Fusion)

3. Problem Description

a. VMware ESXi, Workstation and Fusion vertex shader out-of-bounds read
vulnerability

VMware ESXi, Workstation and Fusion updates address an out-of-bounds
vulnerability with the vertex shader functionality.  Exploitation of this issue
requires an attacker to have access to a virtual machine with 3D graphics
enabled.  Successful exploitation of this issue may lead to information
disclosure or may allow attackers with normal user privileges to create a
denial-of-service condition on their own VM.  The workaround for this issue
involves disabling the 3D-acceleration feature. This feature is not enabled by
default on ESXi and is enabled by default on Workstation and Fusion. 

VMware would like to thank Piotr Bania of Cisco Talos for reporting this issue
to us.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned
the identifier CVE-2019-5516 to this issue.

Column 5 of the following table lists the action required to remediate the
vulnerability in each release, if a solution is available.

Fusion		10.x 	OSX 	Important  10.1.6		VMSA-2018-0025


b. VMware ESXi, Workstation and Fusion multiple shader translator out-of-bounds
read vulnerabilities

VMware ESXi, Workstation and Fusion contain multiple out-of-bounds read
vulnerabilities in the shader translator. Exploitation of these issues requires
an attacker to have access to a virtual machine with 3D graphics enabled. 
Successful exploitation of these issues may lead to information disclosure or
may allow attackers with normal user privileges to create a denial-of-service
condition on their own VM.  The workaround for these issues involves disabling
the 3D-acceleration feature.  This feature is not enabled by default on ESXi
and is enabled by default on Workstation and Fusion.

VMware would like to thank RanchoIce of Tencent Security ZhanluLab for
reporting these issues to us.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned
the identifier CVE-2019-5517 to these issues.
