Resolved Issues in VMware Workstation 8.0.4 Build 744019 | 13 JUNE 2012:
General Issues
* Linux guests running the Linux kernel version 2.6.34 or later could not be pinged from the host via an IPv6 address.
* On rare occasions, Linux guests would suddenly fail to Autofit or enter Unity.
* Unity mode would exit if the title bar of an application contained certain non UTF-8 encoded extended ASCII characters.
* On Windows hosts, the VMware Workstation user interface sometimes became unresponsive when minimized from full-screen mode if the suggestion balloon was being displayed.
* On Windows hosts, the user interface sometimes became unresponsive if the application was rendered on an extended display that was abruptly disconnected.
Security Issues
* VMware host Checkpoint file memory corruption. Input data was not properly validated when loading Checkpoint files. This issue could have allowed an attacker with the ability to load a specially crafted Checkpoint file to execute arbitrary code on the host.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2012-3288 to this issue.
* VMware virtual machine remote device denial of service. A device (such as CD-ROM or keyboard) that is available to a virtual machine while physically connected to a system that does not run the virtual machine is referred to as a remote device. Traffic coming from remote virtual devices was incorrectly handled. This issue could have allowed an attacker who was capable of manipulating the traffic from a remote virtual device to crash the virtual machine. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2012-3289 to this issue.
