Oracle VM VirtualBox < 4.0.36 / 4.1.44 / 4.2.36 / 4.3.34 / 5.0.10 Multiple Vulnerabilities (January 2016 CPU)

High Nessus Plugin ID 88051

Synopsis

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

Description

The Oracle VM VirtualBox application installed on the remote host is a version prior to 4.0.36, 4.1.44, 4.2.36, 4.3.34, or 5.0.10. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A denial of service vulnerability exists due to an infinite loop condition in the KVM subsystem of the Linux kernel. A local attacker can exploit this, by triggering many Alignment Check (#AC) exceptions, to cause an OS panic or hang. (CVE-2015-5307)

- A integer overflow condition exists in the PL_ARENA_ALLOCATE implementation in Netscape Portable Runtime (NSPR) due to a failure to properly validate user-supplied input during memory allocation. A remote attacker can exploit this to corrupt memory, resulting in a denial of service or execution of arbitrary code.
(CVE-2015-7183)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists due to an infinite loop condition in the KVM subsystem of the Linux kernel. A local attacker can exploit this, by triggering many Debug (#DB) exceptions, to cause an OS panic or hang.
(CVE-2015-8104)

Solution

Upgrade to Oracle VM VirtualBox version 4.0.36 / 4.1.44 / 4.2.36 / 4.3.34 / 5.0.10 or later as referenced in the January 2016 Oracle Critical Patch Update advisory.
