A vulnerability in VMware's COM API ActiveX allows remote attackers to cause it to overflow an internal buffer which in turn can be used to execute abitrary code. Exploit/vuln testing code available here:

From the perspective of MDL and malware analysis-- this vuln can be embedded on malware distribution sites in order to specifically attack machines running in a vmware emulated environment... The class ID to watch out for is:
38DB77F9-058D-4955-98AA-4A9F3B6A5B06. My usual request applies-- please let me know if you find this in the wild, even though I know nobody will. :)
