VMware ESXi updates

A couple of SANs ISC diaries (“Recent VMware updates available” and “VMware exploits – just how bad is it?“) should be a concern for anyone running a VMware lab (or VMware production environment). The ISC diaries explain the situation better than I could, but to cut a long story short the exploits allow a malicious user/payload to escape the guest system and gain direct access to the host.

Looks like I know what I’ll be doing after work tonight. I’ll try to document the update process as I go, watch this space…
