Package        : jython
CVE ID         : CVE-2016-4000
Debian Bug     : 864859

Alvaro Munoz and Christian Schneider discovered that jython, an
implementation of the Python language seamlessly integrated with Java,
is prone to arbitrary code execution triggered when sending a serialized
function to the deserializer.

For the oldstable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed
in version 2.5.3-3+deb8u1.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.5.3-16+deb9u1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.5.3-17.

We recommend that you upgrade your jython packages.
