Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: BeanShell: Arbitrary code execution (GLSA 201607-17)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: July 30, 2016
Bug(s): #575482
ID: 201607-17

Synopsis

BeanShell is vulnerable to the remote execution of arbitrary code
via Java serialization or XStream from an untrusted source.


Background

BeanShell is a small, free, embeddable Java source interpreter with
object scripting language features, written in Java.


Affected Packages

Package: dev-java/bsh
Vulnerable: < 2.0_beta6
Unaffected: >= 2.0_beta6
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

An application that includes BeanShell on the classpath may be
vulnerable if another part of the application uses Java serialization or
XStream to deserialize data from an untrusted source.


Impact

Remote attackers could execute arbitrary code including shell commands.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All BeanShell users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --verbose --oneshot ">=dev-java/bsh-2.0_beta6"
