Hashicorp vagrant-vmware-fusion 5.0.1 Local Privilege Escalation
# I recently blogged about how the installation process of version 5.0.0 of this
# plugin could be hihacked by a local attacker or malware in order to escalate
# privileges to root.  Hashicorp pushed some mitigations for this issue fairly
# quickly but unfortunately 5.0.1 is still exploitable with a slightly different
# approach.
 
# They removed the chmod/chown shell commands from their osascript invocation and
# instead simply executed their installer as root, but apparently didn't realise
# that the installer is not root-owned so can be swapped out by a local attacker
# during the process.
 
# This issue is fixed in version 5.0.2.
