FreeBSD : groovy -- remote execution of untrusted code (67b3fef2-2bea-11e5-86ff-14dae9d210b8)

High Nessus Plugin ID 84814


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


Cedric Champeau reports :


When an application has Groovy on the classpath and that it uses standard Java serialization mechanism to communicate between servers, or to store local data, it is possible for an attacker to bake 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 package.
