VMware Advisory - UDF file system handling

VMware has released security advisory VMSA-2011-0011 which describes a remote code execution vulnerability in VMware Workstation 7.1.4 and earlier, VMware player 3.1.4 and earlier, and VMware Fusion 3.1.2 and earlier.  Note, VMware released Workstation 8 and Fusion 4 late last month, so if you have upgraded to the bleeding edge, you are not affected.

They also released VMWare Player 4.0.0 two weeks ago, which I imagine is also "bleeding edge" and not affected.
