open-vm-tools is a package that provides Open VMware Tools for virtual
machines hosted on VMware.
It was discovered that Open VM Tools incorrectly handled certain
authentication requests. A fully compromised ESXi host can force Open
VM Tools to fail to authenticate host-to-guest operations, impacting
the confidentiality and integrity of the guest virtual machine.
An open-vm-tools security update has been released for Debian GNU/Linux 8 and 9 Extended LTS to address an issue that impact the confidentiality and integrity of the guest virtual machine.
