DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201610-01 (Groovy: Arbitrary code execution)
Groovy’s MethodClosure class, in runtime/MethodClosure.java, is vulnerable to a crafted serialized object.
Remote attackers could potentially execute arbitrary code, or cause Denial of Service condition Workaround :
A workaround exists by using a custom security policy file utilizing the standard Java security manager, or do not rely on serialization to communicate remotely.
SolutionAll Groovy users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=dev-java/groovy-2.4.5'
