Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.0.x < 5.0.32 / 5.1.x < 5.1.14 Multiple Vulnerabilities (January 2017 CPU)

High Nessus Plugin ID 96609

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Oracle VM VirtualBox installed on the remote host is 5.0.x prior to 5.0.32 or 5.1.x prior to 5.1.14. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified flaw exists in the GUI subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to impact confidentiality, integrity, and availability.
(CVE-2016-5545)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Shared Folder subcomponent that allows a local attacker to impact integrity and availability. (CVE-2017-3290)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the GUI subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-3316)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the VirtualBox SVGA Emulation subcomponent that allows a local attacker to impact integrity and availability. (CVE-2017-3332)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade to Oracle VM VirtualBox version 5.0.32 / 5.1.14 or later as referenced in the January 2017 Oracle Critical Patch Update advisory.
