Subject [jira] [Commented] (COLLECTIONS-580) Arbitrary remote code execution with InvokerTransformer
Date Tue, 17 Nov 2015 14:49:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COLLECTIONS-580?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15008749#comment-15008749

Stevie Beck commented on COLLECTIONS-580:
-----------------------------------------

+1 (thanks for the fix!)
Regarding CVE number: Mitre did not (yet?) assign one, and there has been a controversial
discussion in the OSS Security list around it, see: http://seclists.org/oss-sec/2015/q4/280
CVE-2015-4852 was assigned by Oracle and is started to be used by other vendors, whose products
are impacted by the issue.

> With {{InvokerTransformer}} serializable collections can be build that execute arbitrary
Java code. {{sun.reflect.annotation.AnnotationInvocationHandler#readObject}} invokes {{#entrySet}}
and {{#get}} on a deserialized collection. If you have an endpoint that accepts serialized
Java objects (JMX, RMI, remote EJB, ...) you can combine the two to create arbitrary remote
code execution vulnerability.
> I don't know of a good fix short of removing {{InvokerTransformer}} or making it not
Serializable. Both probably break existing applications.
> This is not my research, but has been discovered by other people.
