Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls
The installer in VMware Workstation 7.x before 7.1.2 build 301548 and VMware Player 3.x before 3.1.2 build 301548 renders an index.htm file if present in the installation directory, which might allow local users to trigger unintended interpretation of web script or HTML by creating this file.
CWE-264 - Permissions Privileges and Access Controls
CWE 264 (permissions, privileges, and access controls) is not a weakness in and of itself, rather it is a category of weaknesses related to the management of permissions, privileges, and other security features used to perform access control. If not addressed, the weaknesses in this category allow attackers to gain privileges for an unintended sphere of control, access sensitive information, and execute arbitrary commands.
