The advice in the other answer, to reinstall virtualbox, is probably overkill, and may cause you to lose data if you have pre-existing machines set up in it like I did. I found this in another thread that provides a very simple and fast solution without a reinstall. I can't post links, though, so here's a copy-paste with some additional clarification instead (origional poster was aestu on fedorapeople).

$uname -r  Then find the corresponding kmod-VirtualBox-* package: $ yum search kmod-VirtualBox

$yum install kmod-VirtualBox-#### appropriate version from list in previous step  Finally, run: $ /etc/sysconfig/modules/VirtualBox.modules
