VirtualBox 7.0.2 Update
Freeware VM VirtualBox released version 7.0.2 on October 20, 2022.
The Change Log for 7.0.2 lists fixes and a known issue. Here are the macOS related ones:
  • Known issue: VMs having more than one vCPU configured will not work properly on macOS Catalina due to an unknown memory corruption issue. Either lower the number of vCPUs to 1 or upgrade to BigSur or later where the issue does not occur

  • macOS hosts: Added workaround for a bug in the Hypervisor framework on Catalina causing VERR_NEM_MAP_PAGES_FAILED errors when starting a VM. (bug #21128)

  • macOS hosts: Re-introduced support for internal networking, this is considered a bit experimental still

  • macOS hosts: Fixed VM crash when the guest tries to access a microphone or webcam
(Previous v7.0.0 was a major update, see note on Apple Silicon Macs.)
