Summary: Installing VirtualBox from Leap 42.2 doesn't generate

After installing VirtualBox from the Leap 42.2 DVD I downloaded, the guest VM's
were unable to recognize USB devices in the guest even after installing the
extension pack and making sure my user id was a member of the vboxusers group.
It turns out the issue is the /etc/udev/rules.d/S60-vboxdrv.rules file is not
created. This was not an issue in 42.1. By manually creating this file, the USB
issue is resolved. The installation script for VirtualBox needs to be updated
to include setting up this file (in earlier versions, the necessary lines
appear in the file but are commented out due to potential security risks. This
behavior should be maintained). My manually created file contained the
following lines:
KERNEL=="vboxdrv", NAME="vboxdrv", OWNER="root", GROUP="root",
MODE="0600"KERNEL=="vboxdrvu", NAME="vboxdrvu", OWNER="root", GROUP="root",
KERNEL=="vboxnetctl", NAME="vboxnetctl", OWNER="root", GROUP="root",
SUBSYSTEM=="usb_device", ACTION=="add",
RUN+="/usr/lib/virtualbox/ $major $minor
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ACTION=="add", ENV{DEVTYPE}=="usb_device",
RUN+="/usr/lib/virtualbox/ $major $minor
SUBSYSTEM=="usb_device", ACTION=="remove",
RUN+="/usr/lib/virtualbox/ --remove $major $minor"
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ACTION=="remove", ENV{DEVTYPE}=="usb_device",
RUN+="/usr/lib/virtualbox/ --remove $major $minor"
