Title: Groovy: Arbitrary code execution (GLSA 201610-01)
Date: October 06, 2016
Groovy is vulnerable to a remote execution of arbitrary code when
java serialization is used.
A multi-faceted language for the Java platform
Vulnerable: < 2.4.5
Unaffected: >= 2.4.5
Architectures: All supported architectures
Groovy’s MethodClosure class, in runtime/MethodClosure.java, 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
All Groovy users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-java/groovy-2.4.5"
