VMware Hosted Products VMware Tools Local Privilege Escalation Vulnerability

Multiple VMware products are prone to a local privilege-escalation vulnerability.

Local attackers can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges; this may aid in other attacks. This issue only affects guest systems running on Windows.

NOTE: This issue was previously covered in BID 39345 (VMware Hosted Products VMSA-2010-0007 Multiple Remote and Local Vulnerabilities), but has been given its own record to better document it.
