Synopsis

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Security Fix(es) :

- It was found that a flaw in Apache groovy library allows remote code execution wherever deserialization occurs in the application. It is possible for an attacker to craft a special serialized object that will execute code directly when deserialized. All applications which rely on serialization and do not isolate the code which deserializes objects are subject to this vulnerability.
(CVE-2016-6814)

Solution

Update the affected groovy and / or groovy-javadoc packages.
