   An update that solves one vulnerability and has four fixes
   is now available.

Description:

   This update for open-vm-tools fixes the following issues:

   - CVE-2022-31676: Fixed an issue that could allow unprivileged users
     inside a virtual machine to escalate privileges (bsc#1202657).

   Non-security fixes:

   - Update to 11.0.5 (build 15389592) (bsc#1165955) DNS server is reported
     incorrectly in GuestInfo as '127.0.0.53', when the OS uses
     systemd-resolved. This issue is fixed in this release. Added Application
     Discover (appInfo) plugin. The plugin collects the information about
     running applications inside the guest and publishes the information to a
     guest variable.

   - GCC-10 compiler failure (bsc#1160408) The update will solve a GNU
     compiler Collection GCC10 failure with -fno-common.

   - Rectify a log spew in vmsvc logging (bsc#1162435, bsc#1162119) When a
     LSI Logic Parallel SCSI controller sits in PCI bus 0 (SCSI controller
     0), the Linux disk device enumeration does not provide a "label" file
     with the controller name.  This results in messages like
     "GuestInfoGetDiskDevice: Missing disk device name; VMDK mapping
     unavailable for "/var/log", fsName: "/dev/sda2" repeatedly appearing in
     the vmsvc logging. The update converts what previously was a warning
     message to a debug message and thus avoids the log spew.

   like YaST online_update or "zypper patch".
