VMware Fusion 6.0.3 and Fusion 6.0.3 Professional

Send Article to a Friend

VMware has updated its popular virtualization package VMware Fusion to version 6.0.3 with standard and Professional editions, both of which resolve OpenSSL security vulnerabilities related to the Heartbleed bug (see “The Normal Person’s Guide to the Heartbleed Vulnerability,” 9 April 2014). The release also resolves an issue that prevented USB devices from connecting to a virtual machine, improves performance and compatibility with USB audio and video devices, reduces the number of crashes when your Mac comes out of sleep mode, and improves support for using two monitors with the same virtual machine. It also prevents several instances of a screen or window turning black, including when returning to the Mac desktop while the virtual machine is running, resizing a Windows XP virtual machine window, and using an Apple TV as an external display. ($59.99/129.99 new, free updates, 514 MB, release notes, 10.7+)
