More information:

It was discovered that there was a remote arbitrary code vulnerability in commons-beanutils, a set of utilities for manipulating JavaBeans code.

  • CVE-2019-10086

    In Apache Commons Beanutils 1.9.2, a special BeanIntrospector class was added which allows suppressing the ability for an attacker to access the classloader via the class property available on all Java objects. We, however were not using this by default characteristic of the PropertyUtilsBean.

For Debian 8 Jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 1.9.2-1+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your commons-beanutils packages.
