Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.2.x < 5.2.24 / 6.0.x < 6.0.2 (Jan 2019 CPU)

High Nessus Plugin ID 121247

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Oracle VM VirtualBox running on the remote host is
5.2.x prior to 5.2.24 or 6.0.x prior to 6.0.2. It is, therefore,
affected by multiple vulnerabilities as noted in the January 2018
Critical Patch Update advisory :

- A denial of service vulnerability in the bundled
third-party component OpenSSL library's DSA signature
algorithm that renders it vulnerable to a timing side
channel attack. An attacker could leverage this
vulnerability to recover the private key.
(CVE-2018-0734)

- Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the Core
component of Oracle VirtualBox could allow an
authenticated, local attacker with logon to the
infrastructure where Oracle VM VirtualBox executes to
compromise Oracle VM VirtualBox. (CVE-2018-3309,
CVE-2019-2500, CVE-2019-2520, CVE-2019-2521,
CVE-2019-2522, CVE-2019-2523, CVE-2019-2524,
CVE-2019-2526, CVE-2019-2548, CVE-2019-2552)

- Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the Core
component of Oracle VirtualBox could allow an
authenticated, local attacker with logon to the
infrastructure where Oracle VM VirtualBox executes to
potentially expose critical or confidential data.
(CVE-2019-2446, CVE-2019-2448, CVE-2019-2450,
CVE-2019-2451, CVE-2019-2501, CVE-2019-2504,
CVE-2019-2505, CVE-2019-2506, CVE-2019-2525,
CVE-2019-2553, CVE-2019-2554, CVE-2019-2555,
CVE-2019-2556)

- Multiple denial of service vulnerabilities in the Core
component of Oracle VirtualBox could allow an
authenticated, local attacker with logon to the
infrastructure where Oracle VM VirtualBox executes to
cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2019-2508,
CVE-2019-2509, CVE-2019-2527)

- An denial of service vulnerabilities with the SOAP
protocol in the Core component of Oracle VirtualBox
could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker, to
potentially a denial of service condition.
(CVE-2019-2511)

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 5.2.24, 6.0.2 or later as
referenced in the January 2019 Oracle Critical Patch Update advisory.
