    Package        : libcommons-fileupload-java
    Vulnerability  : arbitrary file upload via deserialization
    Problem type   : local (remote)
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2013-2186
    Debian Bug     : 726601
    
    It was discovered that Apache Commons FileUpload, a package to make it
    easy to add robust, high-performance, file upload capability to servlets
    and web applications, incorrectly handled file names with NULL bytes in
    serialized instances. A remote attacker able to supply a serialized
    instance of the DiskFileItem class, which will be deserialized on a
    server, could use this flaw to write arbitrary content to any location
    on the server that is accessible to the user running the application
    server process.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2.2-1+deb6u1.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2.2-1+deb7u1.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.3-2.1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.3-2.1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libcommons-fileupload-java packages.
