VMware has released version 5.1.2. for its Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) product View. This version is considered a maintenance release which can be used to upgrade from View 5.1 which was released in May this year or View 5.1.1.
Some of the issues resolved in this release are:
- Network printers were not being redirected into desktop virtual machines after upgrading to View 5.1.
- VMware View contains a critical directory traversal vulnerability that allows an unauthenticated remote attacker to retrieve arbitrary files from affected View Servers.
- Installing View Agent 5.0 on a Windows XP SP3 virtual machine caused a Stop Error (BSoD) on the virtual machine.
