Moving Past the Virtualization Hype


It’s only natural, I suppose.  When wireless networking started to become popular, it was decried as insecure and everyone was warned against using it.  When mobile computing started to take off, it was proclaimed a terrible security risk, and organizations were warned against it.  And now it’s happening with server virtualization.  Of course, since VMware is the lead player in this realm, they are the ones with the target on their back.

The latest volley comes from a “one-two” punch over the past couple of weeks. First, there was a vulnerability discovered in some of the VMware hosted client products (VMware Workstation and VMware Player); specifically, when using the Shared Folders feature. This feature allows host-to-guest interaction. The press went crazy with this one:

·         Critical VMware bug lets attackers zap ‘real’ Windows

·         New VMware vulnerability without a patch
