VirtualBox v6.0.4 r128413 (Qt5.9.4)

During a recent system update (15-Mar-2019) the file permissions for VirtualBox
were changed:

----[ zypper logs ]----

----[ end ]----

Subsequently starting a guest session results in this error:
----[ VirtualBox error ]----
Effective UID is not root (euid=1000 egid=100 uid=1000 gid=100) (rc=-10)
Please try reinstalling VirtualBox.
where: SUPR3HardenedMain
what: 2 VERR_PERMISSION_DENIED (-10) - Permission denied.
----[ end ]----

Re-installation allows the program to start.

VirtualBox is installed as a 3rd party RPM rather than an opensuse package.
