Security Fix(es) :

* A deserialization flaw was discovered in jackson-databind which could allow an unauthenticated user to perform code execution by sending maliciously crafted input to the readValue method of the ObjectMapper. (CVE-2017-7525)

Red Hat would like to thank Liao Xinxi (NSFOCUS) for reporting CVE-2017-7525.
