* A deserialization flaw allowing remote code execution was found in the
BeanShell library. If BeanShell was on the classpath, it could permit code
execution if another part of the application deserialized objects involving
a specially constructed chain of classes. A remote attacker could use this
flaw to execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the application
using the BeanShell library. (CVE-2016-2510)
