Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Commons-BeanUtils: Arbitrary code execution (GLSA 201607-09)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: July 20, 2016
Bug(s): #534498
ID: 201607-09

Synopsis

Apache Commons BeanUtils does not properly suppress the class
property, which could lead to the remote execution of arbitrary code.


Background

Commons-beanutils provides easy-to-use wrappers around Reflection and
Introspection APIs


Affected Packages

Package: dev-java/commons-beanutils
Vulnerable: < 1.9.2
Unaffected: >= 1.9.2
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Apache Commons BeanUtils does not suppress the class property, which
allows for the manipulation of the ClassLoader.


Impact

Remote attackers could potentially execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Commons BeanUtils users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
      ">=dev-java/commons-beanutils-1.9.2"
