Trying every other option to solve this, I finally found this in another thread:

Reboot the mac in recovery mode ("option-command-R" while booting)

Open a terminal

spctl kext-consent add VB5E2TV963

The last word is the code for the oracle virtualbox

Reboot the mac in ordinary mode

After this I could again open virtualbox and work as usual!
