Abstract
------------------------------------------------------------------------

A DLL side loading vulnerability was found in the VMware Host Guest
Client Redirector, a component of VMware Tools. This issue can be
exploited by luring a victim into opening a document from the attacker's
share. An attacker can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code with
the privileges of the target user. This can potentially result in the
attacker taking complete control of the affected system. If the WebDAV
Mini-Redirector is enabled, it is possible to exploit this issue over
the internet.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tested versions
------------------------------------------------------------------------

This issue was successfully verified on VMware Tools for Windows version
10.0.5 build 3228253.
