medium Nessus Plugin ID 86567


An application installed on the remote host is affected by an unspecified denial of service vulnerability.


The Oracle VM VirtualBox application installed on the remote host is a version prior to 4.0.30, 4.1.38, 4.2.30, 4.3.26, or 5.0.0. It is, therefore, affected by an unspecified flaw in the Core subcomponent.
A local attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service.
