issues :

These security issues were fixed (bsc#1034854) :

- CVE-2017-3561: Vulnerability in the Oracle VM VirtualBox
component of Oracle Virtualization (subcomponent: Core).
Easily exploitable vulnerability allows low privileged
attacker with logon to the infrastructure where Oracle
VM VirtualBox executes to compromise Oracle VM
VirtualBox. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can
result in takeover of Oracle VM VirtualBox.

- CVE-2017-3563: Vulnerability in the Oracle VM VirtualBox
component of Oracle Virtualization (subcomponent: Core).
Easily exploitable vulnerability allows low privileged
attacker with logon to the infrastructure where Oracle
VM VirtualBox executes to compromise Oracle VM
VirtualBox. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can
result in takeover of Oracle VM VirtualBox.

- CVE-2017-3576: Vulnerability in the Oracle VM VirtualBox
component of Oracle Virtualization (subcomponent: Core).
Easily exploitable vulnerability allows low privileged
attacker with logon to the infrastructure where Oracle
VM VirtualBox executes to compromise Oracle VM
VirtualBox. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can
result in takeover of Oracle VM VirtualBox.

- CVE-2017-3587: Vulnerability in the Oracle VM VirtualBox
component of Oracle Virtualization (subcomponent: Shared
Folder). Easily exploitable vulnerability allows low
privileged attacker with logon to the infrastructure
where Oracle VM VirtualBox executes to compromise Oracle
VM VirtualBox. Successful attacks of this vulnerability
can result in unauthorized creation, deletion or
modification access to critical data or all Oracle VM
VirtualBox accessible data and unauthorized ability to
cause a hang or frequently repeatable crash (complete
DOS) of Oracle VM VirtualBox.

- CVE-2017-3575: Vulnerability in the Oracle VM VirtualBox
component of Oracle Virtualization (subcomponent: Core).
Easily exploitable vulnerability allows high privileged
attacker with logon to the infrastructure where Oracle
VM VirtualBox executes to compromise Oracle VM
VirtualBox. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can
result in unauthorized creation, deletion or
modification access to critical data or all Oracle VM
VirtualBox accessible data and unauthorized ability to
cause a hang or frequently repeatable crash (complete
DOS) of Oracle VM VirtualBox.

- CVE-2017-3538: Vulnerability in the Oracle VM VirtualBox
component of Oracle Virtualization (subcomponent: Shared
Folder). Difficult to exploit vulnerability allows low
privileged attacker with logon to the infrastructure
where Oracle VM VirtualBox executes to compromise Oracle
VM VirtualBox. Successful attacks of this vulnerability
can result in unauthorized creation, deletion or
modification access to critical data or all Oracle VM
VirtualBox accessible data as well as unauthorized
access to critical data or complete access to all Oracle
VM VirtualBox accessible data.

- CVE-2017-3513: Vulnerability in the Oracle VM VirtualBox
component of Oracle Virtualization (subcomponent: Core).
Difficult to exploit vulnerability allows high
privileged attacker with logon to the infrastructure
where Oracle VM VirtualBox executes to compromise Oracle
VM VirtualBox. Successful attacks of this vulnerability
can result in unauthorized read access to a subset of
Oracle VM VirtualBox accessible data.

- CVE-2017-3558: Vulnerability in the Oracle VM VirtualBox
component of Oracle Virtualization (subcomponent: Core).
Easily exploitable vulnerability allows unauthenticated
attacker with logon to the infrastructure where Oracle
VM VirtualBox executes to compromise Oracle VM
VirtualBox. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can
result in unauthorized ability to cause a hang or
frequently repeatable crash (complete DOS) of Oracle VM
VirtualBox as well as unauthorized update, insert or
delete access to some of Oracle VM VirtualBox accessible
data and unauthorized read access to a subset of Oracle
VM VirtualBox accessible data.

- CVE-2017-3559: Vulnerability in the Oracle VM VirtualBox
component of Oracle Virtualization (subcomponent: Core).
Easily exploitable vulnerability allows low privileged
attacker with logon to the infrastructure where Oracle
VM VirtualBox executes to compromise Oracle VM
VirtualBox. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can
result in unauthorized ability to cause a hang or
frequently repeatable crash (complete DOS) of Oracle VM
VirtualBox as well as unauthorized update, insert or
delete access to some of Oracle VM VirtualBox accessible
data and unauthorized read access to a subset of Oracle
VM VirtualBox accessible data. These non-security issues
were fixed :

- GUI: don't check if the Extension Pack is up-to-date if
the user is about to install a new Extension Pack

- GUI: fixed a possible crash when switching a
multi-monitor VM into full-screen or seamless mode

- GUI: several mini-toolbar fixes in full-screen /
seamless mode

- GUI: don't crash on restoring defaults in the appliance
import dialog

- ICH9: fix for Windows guests with a huge amount (more
than 64G) of guest memory

- BIOS: fixed El Torito hard disk emulation geometry
calculation

- VMM: fixed VERR_IEM_INSTR_NOT_IMPLEMENTED Guru
Meditation under certain conditions

- Storage: fixed a potential hang under rare circumstances

- Storage: fixed a potential crash under rare
circumstances (asynchronous I/O disabled or during
maintenance file operations like merging snapshots)

- Linux hosts: make the ALSA backend work again as well as
loading the GL libraries on certain hosts

- Linux Additions: fixed mount.vboxsf symlink problem
