We are aware of the (so far only) rumors but don’t know anything beyond what is available on the public sources which all copy from each other.
The original source seems to be http://pythonsweetness.tumblr.com/post/169166980422/the-mysterious-case-of-the-linux-page-table
Because there are no details so far we can’t say whether VirtualBox is affected in any way.
