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)
