Package : logback Version : 1:1.0.4-1+deb7u1 CVE ID : CVE-2017-5929 Debian Bug : 857343

It was discovered that logback, a flexible logging library for Java, would deserialize data from untrusted sockets which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code. This issue has been resolved by adding a whitelist to use only trusted classes.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version 1:1.0.4-1+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your logback packages.
