Please be better advised. VMware are being economical with the truth

To whom IT may be of concern.

Successful exploitation of this issue, CVE-2020-3947, leads with/to code execution on the host from the guest and allows attackers to create a denial-of-service condition of the vmnetdhcp service running on the host machine.

There are no ifs, buts or maybes. It is one of Virtualisation's Achilles Heels and/or Almighty Hammers.
