Scientific Linux Security Update : groovy on SL7.x (noarch)

High Nessus Plugin ID 102675


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


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.


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