Debian DSA-3504-1 : bsh - security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 89694


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


Alvaro Munoz and Christian Schneider discovered that BeanShell, an embeddable Java source interpreter, could be leveraged to execute arbitrary commands: applications including BeanShell in their classpath are vulnerable to this flaw if they deserialize data from an untrusted source.


Upgrade the bsh packages.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 2.0b4-12+deb7u1.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 2.0b4-15+deb8u1.
