Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.1.x < 5.1.24 (July 2017 CPU)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 101818

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 5.1.x prior to 5.1.24. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities exist in the Core component that allow a local attacker to have an impact on confidentiality, integrity, and availability.
(CVE-2017-10129, CVE-2017-10204, CVE-2017-10210, CVE-2017-10236, CVE-2017-10237, CVE-2017-10238, CVE-2017-10239, CVE-2017-10240, CVE-2017-10241, CVE-2017-10242)

- Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities exist in the Core component that allow a local attacker to have an impact on integrity and availability. (CVE-2017-10187, CVE-2017-10233, CVE-2017-10235)

- An unspecified vulnerability exists in the Core component that allows a local attacker to have an impact on confidentiality and availability. (CVE-2017-10209)

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

Solution

Upgrade to Oracle VM VirtualBox version 5.1.24 or later as referenced in the July 2017 Oracle Critical Patch Update advisory.
