Description:   Two vulnerabilities were reported in VMware ESX Server. A user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target Windows-based guest operating system.

A remote user can create a specially crafted file that, when loaded by the target user via a network share, will trigger a library loading flaw and execute arbitrary code on the target guest operating system [CVE-2010-1141]. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

A user can create and place a specially crafted executable file in a certain location on the target user's Virtual Machine (which may require administrator privileges) to cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target guest operating system [CVE-2010-1142].

Only Windows-based guest operating systems are affected.

Vmware Workstation 6.5.x, Player 2.5.x, ACE 2.5.x, Server 2.x, and Fusion 2.x are affected.

Jure Skofic and Mitja Kolsek of ACROS Security reported these vulnerabilities.
