1) if you read that page, it says "We are currently investigating the issue."

2) VMware is not linux and doesn't use bash.  Patches are slowing coming out for different linux distributions.

This security issue was only reported yesterday 24th September 2014.

It will take VMware engineering a few days to process the information and test, if applicable to VMware vSphere products.

DON'T PANIC!

There are no fixes at present, unless you want to turn off your server!!!

Bookmark the page, and Keep a Watch on it for Changes!

Have you patched for the SSL Heartbleed ?

Do you have Linux or Unix VMs ?

vmware ESXi is linux, but it uses ash not bash, you can verify that over SSH.
all virtual appliances are normal linux, suse or centos, so vulnerable. for centos updates are free, probably you just get on system as root and "yum update bash", for SuSE it is subscription-based (read - cmware will provide update some day)

I doubt they call shell scripts via CGI (it is tomcat)
