    Package        : libcommons-collections3-java
    
    This update backports changes from the commons-collections 3.2.2 release
    which disable the deserialisation of the functors classes unless the
    system property org.apache.commons.collections.enableUnsafeSerialization
    is set to 'true'. This fixes a vulnerability in unsafe applications
    deserialising objects from untrusted sources without sanitising the
    input data. Classes considered unsafe are: CloneTransformer, ForClosure,
    InstantiateFactory, InstantiateTransformer, InvokerTransformer,
    PrototypeCloneFactory, PrototypeSerializationFactory and WhileClosure.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed
    in version 3.2.1-5+deb7u1.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.2.1-7+deb8u1.
    
    For the testing distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed
    in version 3.2.2-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.2.2-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libcommons-collections3-java packages.
