Summary

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.
