<p>BeanShell is a small, free, embeddable Java source interpreter with
object scripting language features, written in Java.
<p>An application that includes BeanShell on the classpath may be
vulnerable if another part of the application uses Java serialization or
XStream to deserialize data from an untrusted source.
<impact type="normal">
<p>Remote attackers could execute arbitrary code including shell commands.</p>
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All BeanShell users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --verbose --oneshot "&gt;=dev-java/bsh-2.0_beta6"
