Description

This update to virtualbox 5.0.40 fixes the following issues :

These security issues were fixed (bsc#1034854) :

- CVE-2017-3513: Vulnerability in the Oracle VM VirtualBox component of Oracle Virtualization (subcomponent: Core).
Difficult to exploit vulnerability allows high privileged attacker with logon to the infrastructure where Oracle VM VirtualBox executes to compromise Oracle VM VirtualBox. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized read access to a subset of Oracle VM VirtualBox accessible data.

- CVE-2017-3538: Vulnerability in the Oracle VM VirtualBox component of Oracle Virtualization (subcomponent: Shared Folder). Difficult to exploit vulnerability allows low privileged attacker with logon to the infrastructure where Oracle VM VirtualBox executes to compromise Oracle VM VirtualBox. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized creation, deletion or modification access to critical data or all Oracle VM VirtualBox accessible data as well as unauthorized access to critical data or complete access to all Oracle VM VirtualBox accessible data.

- CVE-2017-3558: Vulnerability in the Oracle VM VirtualBox component of Oracle Virtualization (subcomponent: Core).
Easily exploitable vulnerability allows unauthenticated attacker with logon to the infrastructure where Oracle VM VirtualBox executes to compromise Oracle VM VirtualBox. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized ability to cause a hang or frequently repeatable crash (complete DOS) of Oracle VM VirtualBox as well as unauthorized update, insert or delete access to some of Oracle VM VirtualBox accessible data and unauthorized read access to a subset of Oracle VM VirtualBox accessible data.

- CVE-2017-3559: Vulnerability in the Oracle VM VirtualBox component of Oracle Virtualization (subcomponent: Core).
Easily exploitable vulnerability allows low privileged attacker with logon to the infrastructure where Oracle VM VirtualBox executes to compromise Oracle VM VirtualBox. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized ability to cause a hang or frequently repeatable crash (complete DOS) of Oracle VM VirtualBox as well as unauthorized update, insert or delete access to some of Oracle VM VirtualBox accessible data and unauthorized read access to a subset of Oracle VM VirtualBox accessible data.

- CVE-2017-3561: Vulnerability in the Oracle VM VirtualBox component of Oracle Virtualization (subcomponent: Core).
Easily exploitable vulnerability allows low privileged attacker with logon to the infrastructure where Oracle VM VirtualBox executes to compromise Oracle VM VirtualBox. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in takeover of Oracle VM VirtualBox.

- CVE-2017-3563: Vulnerability in the Oracle VM VirtualBox component of Oracle Virtualization (subcomponent: Core).
Easily exploitable vulnerability allows low privileged attacker with logon to the infrastructure where Oracle VM VirtualBox executes to compromise Oracle VM VirtualBox. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in takeover of Oracle VM VirtualBox.

- CVE-2017-3575: Vulnerability in the Oracle VM VirtualBox component of Oracle Virtualization (subcomponent: Core).
Easily exploitable vulnerability allows high privileged attacker with logon to the infrastructure where Oracle VM VirtualBox executes to compromise Oracle VM VirtualBox. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized creation, deletion or modification access to critical data or all Oracle VM VirtualBox accessible data and unauthorized ability to cause a hang or frequently repeatable crash (complete DOS) of Oracle VM VirtualBox.

- CVE-2017-3576: Vulnerability in the Oracle VM VirtualBox component of Oracle Virtualization (subcomponent: Core).
Easily exploitable vulnerability allows low privileged attacker with logon to the infrastructure where Oracle VM VirtualBox executes to compromise Oracle VM VirtualBox. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in takeover of Oracle VM VirtualBox.

- CVE-2017-3587: Vulnerability in the Oracle VM VirtualBox component of Oracle Virtualization (subcomponent: Shared Folder). Easily exploitable vulnerability allows low privileged attacker with logon to the infrastructure where Oracle VM VirtualBox executes to compromise Oracle VM VirtualBox. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized creation, deletion or modification access to critical data or all Oracle VM VirtualBox accessible data and unauthorized ability to cause a hang or frequently repeatable crash (complete DOS) of Oracle VM VirtualBox. These non-security issues were fixed :

- Storage: fixed a potential hang under rare circumstances

- Storage: fixed a potential crash under rare circumstances (asynchronous I/O disabled or during maintenance file operations like merging snapshots)

- Storage: fixed a potential crash under rare circumstances (no asynchronous I/O or during maintenance file operations like merging snapshots)

- Linux hosts: make the ALSA backend work again as well as Loading the GL libraries on certain hosts

- GUI: don't crash on restoring defaults in the appliance import dialog

Solution

Update the affected virtualbox packages.
