Description Sebastian Krahmer 2012-01-18 15:13:13 UTC
Recent Oracle advisory:


names some VirtualBox fixes:

CVE-2012-0105, CVE-2012-0111 and CVE-2011-3571.

We need to check whether this affects us.

Michal, would you be so kind to check it?

Comment 3 Michal Seben 2012-01-20 20:19:04 UTC
I guess we support currently 
openSUSE:11.4 openSUSE:12.1 and openSUSE:Factory,
please correct me if I am wrong

here is the vbox version vs distro release
vbox-4.0.12 openSUSE:11.4:Update:Test
vbox-4.1.4 openSUSE:12.1
vbox 4.1.8 openSUSE:Factory

according to http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/topics/security/cpujan2012-366304.html table :
CVE-2011-3571 is irrelevant as affects vbox with version 3.2 (we have only >= 4.0.12)
also we are not affected by CVE-2012-0105 as we don't provide Windows Guest Additions

so there is only CVE-2012-0111, but I can't find more information about this security issue, so I will ask for this on vbox mailing list, if you have more info about CVE-2011-3571 please give me a note

Comment 5 Michal Seben 2012-01-29 21:58:30 UTC
here is the thread on vbox mailing list (regarding CVE-2012-0111) :

unfortunately from response is not clear if virtualbox 4.1.4 in our openSUSE 12.1 is affected by CVE-2012-0111, however virtualbox 4.1.8 release (openSUSE:Factory) fixed this security issue

so my suggestion is to update virtualbox to 4.1.8 for openSUSE 12.1
Comment 6 Sebastian Krahmer 2012-04-04 09:02:45 UTC
After discussing in the team, this should be no problem
for 12.1. So just do it. :)
Comment 7 Michal Seben 2012-09-28 06:05:01 UTC
created request #136305 (using osc maintenancerequest)
to update vbox in suse 12.1 to 4.1.22 (update also fix VUL-1 bnc#780711)
Comment 8 Swamp Workflow Management 2012-10-10 08:09:03 UTC
openSUSE-SU-2012:1323-1: An update that solves three vulnerabilities and has two fixes is now available.
