VMware Tools and Windows Terminal Server

I was trying to find out how to prevent users for accessing the VMware tools in a Windows 2003 Terminal Server. Seems this is actually a security bug.

I’m running Windows Terminal Server on top of Debian with VMware Server. My solution was to add an explicit DENY permissions to the WTS_Users group I had added to the TS machine’s “Remote Desktop Users” group. I changed these permissions in the locations mentioned in the securityfocus message.
