VMWare VMSA-2013-0010
VMware Workstation addresses a vulnerability in the vmware-mount component which could result in a privilege escalation on linux-based host machines.
Relevant releases
VMware Workstation 9.x 
VMware Workstation 8.x 
VMware Player 5.x 
VMware Player 4.x
Problem Description
VMware mount privilege escalation 
VMware Workstation and Player contain a vulnerability in the handling of the vmware-mount command. A local malicious user may exploit this vulnerability to escalate their privileges to root on the host OS. The issue is present when Workstation or Player are installed on a Debian-based version of Linux. 
The vulnerability does not allow for privilege escalation from the Guest Operating System to the host or vice-versa. This means that host memory can not be manipulated from the Guest Operating System.
