VMware Workstation Player 15.0.1

VMware Player

VMware Player is the easiest way to run multiple operating systems at the same time on your computer.

With its user-friendly interface, VMware Player makes it effortless for anyone to try out Windows 10, Chrome OS or the latest Linux releases, or to create virtual "sandboxes" to test pre-release software in. VMware Player can also be used to run a virtual copy of an old PC so that you can recycle the old machines you have under your desk or stored in the closet.

  • Run multiple operating systems simultaneously on a single computer
  • Experience the benefits of preconfigured products without any installation or configuration hassles
  • Share data between host computer and virtual machine
  • Run 32- and 64-bit virtual machines
  • Use 3rd-party pre-configured virtual machines and images
  • Share data between the host computer and virtual machine
  • Broad host and guest operating system support
  • Support for USB 2.0 devices
  • Gain easy access to virtual machines via an intuitive home page interface

This release of VMware Workstation Player addresses the following issue:

  • VMware Workstation Player has an uninitialized stack memory usage vulnerability in the vmxnet3 virtual network adapter that might allow a guest to execute code on the host. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the identifier CVE-2018-6981 to this issue.

Resolved Issues:

Editing the VMX file of a virtual machine to automatically connect a USB device does not have the desired effect
