Rule Vulnerability

Insecure Deserialization

Insecure Deserialization relates to web application security. Applications turn an object into data through serialization; the reverse of that process, deserialization, can be vulnerable to attacks when the application trusts the data that is being deserialized. Serialized data is machine readable and not encrypted; serialized user-supplied data should not be trusted. Deserialization attacks can lead to remote code execution.

CVE Additional Information

CVE-2013-2460
Unspecified vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) component in Oracle Java SE 7 Update 21 and earlier, and OpenJDK 7, allows remote attackers to affect confidentiality, integrity, and availability via unknown vectors related to Serviceability. NOTE: the previous information is from the June 2013 CPU. Oracle has not commented on claims from another vendor that this issue allows remote attackers to bypass the Java sandbox via vectors related to "insufficient access checks" in the tracing component.
