Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Oracle VM VirtualBox running on the remote host is 5.2.x prior to 5.2.36, 6.0.x prior to 6.0.16 or 6.1.x prior to 6.1.2. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as noted in the January 2019 Critical Patch Update advisory:

- An unspecified vulnerability exists in the Oracle Virtualization Core component. An authenticated, local attacker can exploit this issue, to compromise and takeover the Oracle VM VirtualBox. (CVE-2020-2674)

- An unspecified vulnerability exists in the Oracle Virtualization Core component. An authenticated, local attacker can exploit this issue, for unauthorized creation, deletion or modification access to critical data or all Oracle VM VirtualBox accessible data as well as unauthorized read access to a subset of Oracle VM VirtualBox accessible data. (CVE-2020-2678)

- A denial of service (DoS) vulnerability exists in the Oracle Virtualization Core component. An authenticated, local attacker can exploit this issue, to cause a hang or frequently repeatable crash (complete DoS) of Oracle VM VirtualBox. (CVE-2020-2703)

Solution
