Branch: CURRENT, Version: 10.2.0nb1, Package name: open-vm-tools-10.2.0nb1, Maintainer: agc

The Open Virtual Machine Tools (open-vm-tools) are the open source
implementation of VMware Tools. They are a set of guest operating
system virtualization components that enhance performance and user
experience of virtual machines. As virtualization technology rapidly
becomes mainstream, each virtualization solution provider implements
their own set of tools and utilities to supplement the guest virtual
machine. However, most of the implementations are proprietary and are
tied to a specific virtualization platform.

The tools are currently composed of kernel modules for Linux and
user-space programs for all VMware supported Unix-like guest operating
systems. They provide several useful functions like:

* File transfer between a host and guest
* Improved memory management and network performance under
* General mechanisms and protocols for communication between host
and guests and from guest to guest

Update to 10.2.0

* Use x11/gtkmm3

  * open-vm-tools 10.2.0 is compatible with all supported versions
    of VMware vSphere ESXi 5.5 and later, VMware Workstation 14.0 and
    VMware Fusion 10.0. See VMware Compatibility Guide for more information.

  * Starting with VMware Tools version 10.2.0, Perl script based VMware
    Tools installation for FreeBSD has been discontinued. Going forward,
    FreeBSD systems are supported only through the open-vm-tools packages
    directly available from FreeBSD package repositories. FreeBSD packages
    for open-vm-tools 10.1.0 and later are available from FreeBSD package

Resolved Issues
  * Summary page of the VM does not list the IP address of the VMs in
    the right order

  * Guest authentication fails with a SystemError fault when the requested
    password is expired

  * The free space reported in vim.vm.GuestInfo.DiskInfo for a Linux guest
    does not match with df command in the guest

  * VMware user process might not restart after upgrades of open-vm-tools

  should not follow the cleanup path to free it. Instead it
  should return FALSE.

Fix for CVE-2015-5191

    Open VMware Tools (CVE-2015-5191) contained multiple file system races in \ 
libDeployPkg, related to the use of hard-coded paths under /tmp.

    Successful exploitation may result in a local privilege escalation. The \ 
impact of this vulnerability is low for distributions which have enabled \ 
PrivateTmp for the affected service.

    We would like to thank Florian Weimer and Kurt Seifried of Red Hat Product \ 
Security for reporting this issue to us.
