Description

cpnrodzc7, working with HP's Zero Day Initiative, discovered that Java applications using standard Java serialization mechanisms to decode untrusted data, and that have Groovy on their classpath, can be passed a serialized object that will cause the application to execute arbitrary code.

For the oldoldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 1.7.0-4+deb6u1.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy) and stable distribution (jessie), this problem will be fixed soon.

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.
