Debian DLA-443-1 : bsh security update
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 89043
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionA remote code execution vulnerability was found in BeanShell, an embeddable Java source interpreter with object scripting language features.
CVE-2016-2510: An application that includes BeanShell on the classpath may be vulnerable if another part of the application uses Java serialization or XStream to deserialize data from an untrusted source. A vulnerable application could be exploited for remote code execution, including executing arbitrary shell commands.
For Debian 6 'Squeeze', these problems have been fixed in version 2.0b4-12+deb6u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your bsh packages.
