  1. Whonix ™ was built and tested with VirtualBox version 6.1.20. Newer VirtualBox not listed on the stable version of Whonix ™ for VirtuallBox, testers-only version of Whonix ™ for VirtuallBox or otherwise in Whonix ™ News are untested by Whonix ™ developers and can cause issues such as instability (VirtualBox VMs not starting [archive], VMs suddenly closing, host freezing, VM black screen). Users are advised to use the wait until newer versions of VirtualBox are recommended for use with Whonix ™.

    Newer VirtualBox versions are hard to install on Debian buster. Perhaps the VirtualBox host software is available (even as a Debian package) from repository VirtualBox guest additions are not available as a Debian package. Using an older version of VirtualBox guest additions (such as the pre-installed ones) might lead to broken functionality such as an inability to resize the VM or instability. Installation of VirtualBox guest additions from ISO might also cause issues. [archive]
