high Nessus Plugin ID 135586
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

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 5.2.40, 6.0.x prior to 6.0.20 or 6.1.x prior to 6.1.6. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as noted in the April 2019 Critical Patch Update advisory. Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue buthas instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number:

- An input-validation flaw exists within the processing of data sent to OHCI endpoints that could allow privilege escalation. (CVE-2020-2575)

- 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-2020-2742, CVE-2020-2758, CVE-2020-2894, CVE-2020-2905, CVE-2020-2908, CVE-2020-2902, CVE-2020-2907, CVE-2020-2911, CVE-2020-2913, CVE-2020-2914, CVE-2020-2929, CVE-2020-2958)

- An unspecified vulnerability exists in the Oracle Virtualization Core component. An authenticated, local attacker can exploit this issue, for unauthorized access to critical data or complete access to all Oracle VM VirtualBox accessible data. (CVE-2020-2741, CVE-2020-2743)

- An unspecified vulnerability exists in the Oracle Virtualization Core component. An authenticated, local attacker can exploit this issue, for unauthorized read access to a subset of Oracle VM VirtualBox accessible data. (CVE-2020-2748)

- 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.
(CVE-2020-2910)

- An unspecified vulnerability exists in the Oracle Virtualization Core component. An authenticated, local attacker can exploit this issue, for unauthorized ability to cause a partial denial of service (partial DOS) of Oracle VM VirtualBox. (CVE-2020-2909)

- An unspecified vulnerability exists in the Oracle Virtualization Core component. An authenticated, local attacker can exploit this issue, for unauthorized ability to cause a hang or frequently repeatable crash (complete DOS) of Oracle VM VirtualBox. (CVE-2020-2959, CVE-2020-2951)

Solution

Upgrade to Oracle VM VirtualBox version 5.2.40, 6.0.20, 6.1.6 or later as referenced in the April 2020 Oracle Critical Patch Update advisory.
