Oracle VM VirtualBox < 5.2.16 Multiple Vulnerabilities (July 2018 CPU)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 111208


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


The version of Oracle VM VirtualBox running on the remote host is 5.2.x prior to 5.2.16. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as noted in the April 2018 Critical Patch Update advisory :

- An unspecified vulnerability in the Oracle VM VirtualBox component of Oracle Virtualization in the Core subcomponent could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker with logon to the infrastructure where Oracle VM VirtualBox executes to compromise Oracle VM VirtualBox. (CVE-2018-3005, CVE-2018-3085, CVE-2018-3086 CVE-2018-3087, CVE-2018-3088, CVE-2018-3089, CVE-2018-3090, CVE-2018-3091, CVE-2018-3055)

Please consult the CVRF details for the applicable CVEs for additional information.

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


Upgrade to Oracle VM VirtualBox version 5.2.16 or later as referenced in the July 2018 Oracle Critical Patch Update advisory.
