    Package        : virtualbox
    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-2594
    
    This update fixes an unspecified security issue in VirtualBox related to
    guests using bridged networking via WiFi. Oracle no longer provides
    information on specific security vulnerabilities in VirtualBox. To still
    support users of the already released Debian releases we've decided to
    update these to the respective 4.1.40 and 4.3.30 bugfix releases. 
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed
    in version 4.1.40-dfsg-1+deb7u1.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.3.30-dfsg-1+deb8u1.
    
    For the testing distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed
    in version 4.3.30-dfsg-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.3.30-dfsg-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your virtualbox packages.
