Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

This update for virtualbox fixes the following issues :

- The version has been updated from 5.1.8 to 5.1.12.
Upstream fixed various functional and security issues.

- Multiple security issues have been fixed that could cause DoS and possibly privilege escalation (CVE-2016-5501,CVE-2016-5538,CVE-2016-5605,CVE-2016-5608 ,CVE-2016-5610, CVE-2016-5611,CVE-2016-561313, boo#1005621)

- A security warning regarding USB passthru has been added. It will be shown only the first time virtualbox is started. (bnc#1018340)

- Reverted a previously introduced user interface scaling change, because it caused problems (https://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php/521520-Virtu alBox-interface-scaling, bsc#1014694)

Solution
