Support for New Guest Operating Systems
VMware provides new support for the following guest operating system on Workstation 6.5.3:
Ubuntu 9.04 is fully supported.
See the Guest/Host OS tab on the VMware Compatibility Guide Web site for supported guests, installation instructions, and known issues.
- New: Third party library libpng updated to 1.2.35. Several flaws were discovered in the way the third-party libpng library handled uninitialized pointers. An attacker could create a PNG image file in such a way, that when loaded by an application linked to libpng, it could cause the application to crash or execute arbitrary code at the privilege level of the user running the application. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-0040 to this issue.
You can download the updated bits here for Windows and here for Linux.
