VMware Fusion(13.x prior to 13.5)Â contains a local privilege escalation vulnerability that occurs during
installation for the first time (the user needs to drag or copy the
application to a folder from the ‘.dmg’ volume) or when installing an
upgrade.Â A malicious actor with local non-administrative user privileges may
exploit this vulnerability to escalate privileges to root on the system
where Fusion is installed or being installed for the first time.
