Default VMware patches buffer overflow in legacy products

From http://h-online.com/-1355268

Virtualisation specialist VMware has warned of a vulnerability (CVE-2011-3868) that could allow attackers to execute arbitrary code. The vulnerability lies in the way UDF filesystems are handled within VMware's Workstation, Player, and Fusion applications, and could be exploited by an attacker to execute code should a user install software from a specially crafted malicious ISO image.
