Hashicorp vagrant-vmware-fusion 5.0.1 Local Privilege Escalation

Hashicorp vagrant-vmware-fusion version 5.0.1 suffers from a local privilege escalation vulnerability.

# 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.
