    Package        : libspring-2.5-java
    Vulnerability  : information disclosure
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2011-2730
    Debian Bug     : 677814
    
    It was discovered that the Spring Framework contains an information
    disclosure vulnerability in the processing of certain Expression
    Language (EL) patterns, allowing attackers to access sensitive
    information using HTTP requests.
    
    NOTE: This update adds a springJspExpressionSupport context parameter
    which must be manually set to false when the Spring Framework runs
    under a container which provides EL support itself.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.5.6.SEC02-2+squeeze1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libspring-2.5-java packages.
