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 5.0.38 or 5.1.x prior to 5.1.20. It is, therefore,
affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Core component that
allows a local attacker to disclose potentially
sensitive information. (CVE-2017-3513)

- An flaw exists in the Shared Folder component,
specifically when cooperating guests access files
within a shared folder while moving it. A local attacker
within a guest can exploit this to read arbitrary files
on the host. (CVE-2017-3538)

- Multiple unspecified flaws exist in the Core component
that allow a local attacker to impact confidentiality,
integrity, and availability. (CVE-2017-3558,
CVE-2017-3559, CVE-2017-3561, CVE-2017-3563,
CVE-2017-3576)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Core component that
allows a local attacker to impact integrity and
availability. (CVE-2017-3575)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Shared Folder
component that allows a local attacker to impact
integrity and availability. (CVE-2017-3587)

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