VMware's security advisory addresses several security issues in VMware Workstation, Player, Fusion, ESXi, ESX and vCloud Director.

Due to a flaw in the handling of invalid ports, it is possible to cause the VMX process to fail. This vulnerability may allow a guest user to affect the VMX process resulting in a partial denial of service on the host.
