Re: Bug#798979: [SECURITY] [DSA 3359-1] virtualbox security update
BTW I'm mostly sure as we specified in a previous email, this problem is not related to the security
DSA, but with a race condition in an upgrade path handled by apt.
(probably always here, but with systemd it might be occurring more frequently).
(it might have happened with a one-line patch, or even with a no change rebuild)
A solution might be to do a
"systemctl stop virtualbox" and check that no "VBoxSVC" is running.
(and sorry for the bad experience you had)
