extension pack fails to install if the file was renamed

Reported by: guntbert Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: installer
Version: VirtualBox 4.0.0 Keywords: extension pack

host: ubuntu 10.04

For use with students I renamed Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-4.0.0-69151.vbox-extpack to virtualbox-Extension-Pack-current.vbox-extpack. The installer failed to install this package ( it said something like "the extension pack is in a file with the wrong name")

Sorry, but this is intended. Perhaps a bit too paranoid but still a security measure.
