VMware Security Advisories
VMware publishes Security Advisories for their products at https://vmware.com/security/advisories.html. While I do encourage you to bookmark this page, there are 2 easy ways to set up automatic notifications for yourself:
- RSS Feed – copy this URL and add it to your favorite newsreader
- Security Advisories mailing list – This is an opt-in/opt-out mailing list which is only used to notify customers of new or updated security advisories
Both of these can be found at the top right-hand side of the advisories page:
Knowledge Base Article Subscription
VMware also has a Knowledge Base that is used to publish technical notes and advisories on products. These are guidance on known issues as well as notes about specific conditional situations. This can include information that customers need to know about workarounds and patches for security advisories.
Each KB article has a link that allows customers to subscribe to this document. When updates to the document are published – subscribers will receive e-mail notification of the update.
To subscribe to a KB article:
- Open the KB article
- Click on the Subscribe link located under the title on the right-hand side (you will be prompted to login to the VMware Customer Connect Portal)
