An application installed on the remote host is affected by multiple unspecified denial of service vulnerabilities.


The Oracle VM VirtualBox application installed on the remote host is a version prior to 4.0.34, 4.1.42, 4.2.34, 4.3.32, or 5.0.8. It is, therefore, affected by multiple unspecified flaws in the Core subcomponent. A local attacker can exploit these to cause a denial of service.
