- Date Reported:
- 27 Jan 2016
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2015-5307, CVE-2015-8104, CVE-2016-0495, CVE-2016-0592.
- More information:
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in VirtualBox, an x86 virtualisation solution.
Upstream support for the 4.1 release series has ended and since no information is available which would allow backports of isolated security fixes, security support for virtualbox in wheezy/oldstable needed to be ended as well. If you use virtualbox with externally procured VMs (e.g. through vagrant) we advise you to update to Debian jessie.
For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 4.3.36-dfsg-1+deb8u1.
For the testing distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 5.0.14-dfsg-1.
For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 5.0.14-dfsg-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your virtualbox packages.
