The Vagrant VMware Utility is a system installer package and is required by the Vagrant VMware Desktop plugin for proper functionality. This system installer provides a small utility service that Vagrant utilizes for interacting with VMware on the system.

Isolating the features which require privileged access into a system installer package provides an easier and more secure installation. Isolating privileged activities to the Vagrant VMware Utility also means that only one privileged installation action must be taken on a system. After the package is installed, any user on the system can be allowed to interact with the utility without the need for privilege escalation.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
