Bad support ended date for v4.3 on website

"2015/12" can't be the ended date because the last release was released on 2016/08

The message "VirtualBox 4.3.x is no longer supported!" did appear in September 2016 ;)

The dates are correct. Official support for VirtualBox 4.3 ended in December 2015. There were three more minor releases after that, but that didn't change the official support status in any way. Much like Microsoft releasing occasional updates to Windows XP doesn't magically make XP into a supported product.
