@louhop
Please uninstall and re-install VirtualBox. See if that improves the situation.

This is a solution:

Step #1. Click the  menu on your Mac and then select Restart.
Step #2. Next up, you have to hold down command+R to boot into the Recovery System.
Step #3. Now, you need to click on the Utilities menu and choose Terminal.
Step #4. Up next, you will have to type csrutil disable and press return.
Step #5. Close the Terminal app.
Step #6. Finally, you need to click the  menu and choose Restart.

Just turn that system protection off in System Recovery boot under terminal and restart OS X. You need to install Virtual Box again so it add .kext to system. This is same situation as I have with my USB modems...

Thanks @MacWeb,
I can remember this being proposed as a temporary workaround somewhere else, but I can't seem to be able to find it at the moment. Which means it's a "good thing"™ that you posted it here... ;)

For anyone who's having issues clicking the "allow" button, you need to do the following.

Hit Command-Shift-4 and move the mouse cursor to the center of the allow button. Note the coordinates listed to the right of the cursor. Leave this window open and do not move it.

Hit command-space and open "script editor"

Create a new script, paste this in it...
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
tell application "System Events" to click at {xxx, yyy}


Replace the xxx and yyy with the coordinates from above.

Click Play on the script editor.

This should fix it. You may need to reinstall the virtualbox package one more time to get the changes to stick - but this fixed it for me!

Wow... Talk about going from Paris to London, via Tokyo! :D
That's an interesting solution there "proslasher", nothing else worked for you? And how does the script work when your actual mouse can't, it doesn't quite compute. Are you perhaps remotely logged in?

I saw a quick note in one of the messages here or in another thread and it was the critical piece I was missing.

When I had the Security & Privacy dialog open, the Apply button visible and clicking on the button and there was no apparent action. The prompt still remained. I needed to WAIT longer before trying the Apply. I found I waited 20 minutes until the button actually worked (the prompt went away).

For some reason, the 'Apply' button does not work as documented by Apple.
The suggestion posted [here][/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=84778&start=15#p412500] worked for me:

Boot into Recovery mode, open a terminal and run:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
spctl kext-consent add VB5E2TV963


It's essentially a hack around pressing the damn button.
And sadly, `man spctl` does not even document this as an option. sheesh!
AFAIK, this forum is the only place to find a solution if pressing 'Apply' does not work for you.
