Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Groovy: Arbitrary code execution (GLSA 201610-01)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: October 06, 2016
Bug(s): #555470
ID: 201610-01


Groovy is vulnerable to a remote execution of arbitrary code when
java serialization is used.


A multi-faceted language for the Java platform

Affected Packages

Package: dev-java/groovy
Vulnerable: < 2.4.5
Unaffected: >= 2.4.5
Architectures: All supported architectures


Groovy’s MethodClosure class, in runtime/, is
vulnerable to a crafted serialized object.


Remote attackers could potentially execute arbitrary code, or cause
Denial of Service condition


A workaround exists by using a custom security policy file utilizing the
standard Java security manager, or do not rely on serialization to
communicate remotely.


All Groovy users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-java/groovy-2.4.5"
