Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : openjpa (MDVSA-2013:246)

high Nessus Plugin ID 70325
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


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


Updated openjpa packages fix security vulnerability :

The BrokerFactory functionality in Apache OpenJPA before 2.2.2 creates local executable JSP files containing logging trace data produced during deserialization of certain crafted OpenJPA objects, which makes it easier for remote attackers to execute arbitrary code by creating a serialized object and leveraging improperly secured server programs (CVE-2013-1768).


Update the affected openjpa, openjpa-javadoc and / or openjpa-tools packages.
