Synopsis :

An application installed on the remote host is affected by multiple
vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Oracle VM VirtualBox installed on the remote host is
5.0.x prior to 5.0.32 or 5.1.x prior to 5.1.14. It is, therefore,
affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified flaw exists in the GUI subcomponent that
allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to impact
confidentiality, integrity, and availability.
(CVE-2016-5545)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Shared Folder
subcomponent that allows a local attacker to impact
integrity and availability. (CVE-2017-3290)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the GUI subcomponent that
allows an authenticated, remote attacker to execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-3316)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the VirtualBox SVGA
Emulation subcomponent that allows a local attacker to
impact integrity and availability. (CVE-2017-3332)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead
relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
