Description

Charles Duffy discovered that the Commandline class in plexus-utils2, a collection of components used by Apache Maven, does not correctly quote the contents of double-quoted strings. An attacker may use this flaw to inject arbitrary shell commands.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 2.0.5-1+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your plexus-utils2 packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
