Alongside the release is a KB with the remediation steps for the Client regarding the pesky CVE-2014-0160 vulnerability.

Horizon 6 is the latest big news from VMware and is all the buzz for EUC land. There are a number of new features and capabilities that make this a very exciting release - let’s take a look!
Whether you’re running Horizon Workspace 1.5 as a POC, or you restricted it to have internal access by design, admins who deployed Workspace without internet access can rejoice knowing that version 1.8 introduces a method for performing an “offline” upgrade. This option was not previously available when upgrading from 1.0 to 1.5.
The process includes setting up a local web server and using the updatelocal.hzn checkurl command against the web server.
When going through the upgrade guide, you may be wondering where you actually get the mentioned updaterepo.zip files. It’s not clearly stated, however, you will need to contact VMware GSS Support in order to obtain those update bits.
As you may have heard, Horizon Workspace 1.8 became GA yesterday. This release hasn’t been publicized too much but is a major improvement over the 1.5 release with many bug fixes.
