Install VirtualBox 5.1.10 released on Ubuntu 16.04, 16.10

  VirtualBox is a general-purpose full virtualizer for x86 hardware, targeted at server, desktop and embedded use.Not only is VirtualBox an extremely feature rich, high performance product for enterprise customers, it is also the only professional solution that is freely available as Open Source Software under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 2.

VirtualBox 5.1.10 Changelog:
  •     GUI: the USB filter settings dialog should allow to specify the USB revision in hexadecimal format
  •     GUI: fixed crash on certain hosts when pressing certain key combinations
  •     GUI: fixed issue with updating the available-geometry on host-screen work-area resize
  •     GUI: don't crash / hang on certain environments if accessibility support is enabled
  •     GUI: fixed various issues in Unscaled HiDPI Output mode
  •     GUI: extend the VM Input menu with Print Screen-related actions
  •     GUI: improved handling of inserting the Guest Additions ISO image by trying all available optical drives rather than only the first one and by not asking the user if he wants to force unmounting (which doesn't work in most cases anyway)
  •     API: default to RTC using UTC for Solaris 11 guests
  •     Settings: be less restrictive when reading a VM configuration containing a host-only adapter without an interface name
  •     Storage: fixed resizing VDI images resulting in an unbootable image under certain circumstances
  •     NAT: fixed several 5.1.8 regressions on Mac OS X and Windows hosts
  •     Audio: fixed a few 5.1.x regressions by using the audio code from 5.0.x until the audio overhaul is completed
  •     VBoxManage: fixed documentation of the storagectl command
  •     Build system: another fix for building VirtualBox on systems which default to Python 3
  •     Windows hosts: hardening fix for Windows 10 build 14971
  •     Windows Additions: properly start the VirtualBox guest services even if the guest user name contains special characters
  •     Solaris Additions: fixed preemptible mouse notification callback being executed under a spinlock for Solaris guests
  •     Linux hosts / guests: Linux 4.9 fixes
  •     Linux Additions: fixed Linux kernel module override rule
