This week VMware published a security advisory VMSA-2018-0025 about the denial-of-service vulnerability in the 3D-acceleration feature in VMware ESXi, Workstation, and Fusion.
It affects all versions of those products if 3D-acceleration feature is enabled for virtual machines (VMs). This is a default setting for all VMs on VMware Workstation and Fusion and might be an issue for the VMs managed by VMware Horizon.
More information about this issue can be found here.

To identify the VMs that have the 3D-acceleration feature enabled, I wrote the following PowerCLI script:
As soon as the permanent solution provided by the vendor, I will update this blog post with more information.
