Oracle has released VirtualBox 5.2 Maintenance Release 10.

Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.2.10 addresses all the CPU (Critical Patch Updates) Advisory for April 2018 related to Oracle VM VirtualBox; A Critical Patch Update is a collection of patches for multiple security vulnerabilities.

This release includes improvements and regression fixes for Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.2. Between them we can mention:

  • Storage: fixed having multiple NVMe controllers with ICH9 enabled

  • NAT: Handle nameserver which is a valid setting

  • BIOS: INT 15h/87h service must disable A20 gate when done

  • Linux Guest Additions: fix a hang starting KDE Plasma

  • Network: fixed wireless detection regression when bridging to adapters with unbound IP protocols

Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.2.10 does not include Microsoft Windows release; we're actively working to get this known regression fixed as soon as possible. Due to this reason, this package will be made available later.
