3. Problem Description

 a. VMware Host Checkpoint file memory corruption

    Input data is not properly validated when loading Checkpoint files.
    This may allow an attacker with the ability to load a specially
    crafted Checkpoint file to execute arbitrary code on the host.

    Workaround
    - None identified

    Mitigation
    - Do not import virtual machines from untrusted sources.

    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
    has assigned the name CVE-2012-3288 to this issue.

    Column 4 of the following table lists the action required to
    remediate the vulnerability in each release, if a solution is
    available.

    ESX            3.5       ESX      ESX350-201206401-SG

 b. VMware Virtual Machine Remote Device Denial of Service

    A device (e.g. CD-ROM, 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 is incorrectly handled.
    This may allow an attacker who is capable of manipulating the
    traffic from a remote virtual device to crash the virtual machine.

    Workaround
    - None identified

    Mitigation
    - Users need administrative privileges on the virtual machine
      in order to attach remote devices.
    - Do not attach untrusted remote devices to a virtual machine.

    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
    has assigned the name CVE-2012-3289 to this issue.

    Column 4 of the following table lists the action required to
    remediate the vulnerability in each release, if a solution is
