    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.
