Where Did My VMware Security Advisories Go? They Went Here!

VMware by Broadcom recently published a blog post called Where did my VMware Security Advisories go? outlining the location changes for the VMware Security Advisories (VMSAs), making clear that from May 6th 2024, they are moved to the Broadcom Support Portal.

While this was anticipated as part of the content transition following the acquisition, it was not anticipated that the VMSAs would be moved into a walled garden that required a login. While it was free to create an account, and get access to the advisories, this was a move that caused some uproar and controversy.

Thankfully VMware by Broadcom has reconsidered the login requirement, and the advisories are again easiliy accessible for everyone. Links below!

Also, note that VMSAs for EUC products will continue to be published on www.vmware.com/security/advisories and are not moved as part of this change.
