RESTEasy contains a JBoss project that provides frameworks to help build RESTful Web Services and RESTful Java applications. It is a fully certified and portable implementation of the JAX-RS specification.

Security Fix(es) :

* It was discovered that under certain conditions RESTEasy could be forced to parse a request with SerializableProvider, resulting in deserialization of potentially untrusted data. An attacker could possibly use this flaw to execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the application using RESTEasy. (CVE-2016-7050)

Red Hat would like to thank Mikhail Egorov (Odin) for reporting this issue.
