Synopsis

Description

Three vulnerabilities have been fixed in the Debian squeeze-lts version of VirtualBox (package name: virtualbox-ose), a x86 virtualisation solution.

CVE-2015-0377

Avoid VirtualBox allowing local users to affect availability via unknown vectors related to Core, which might result in denial of service. (Other issue than CVE-2015-0418).

CVE-2015-0418

Avoid VirtualBox allowing local users to affect availability via unknown vectors related to Core, which might result in denial of service. (Other issue than CVE-2015-0377).

CVE-2015-3456

The Floppy Disk Controller (FDC) in QEMU, also used in VirtualBox and other virtualization products, allowed local guest users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds write and guest crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via the (1) FD_CMD_READ_ID, (2) FD_CMD_DRIVE_SPECIFICATION_COMMAND, or other unspecified commands, aka VENOM.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
