BMC Software’s Application Security team is investigating the impact that the Apache Commons Library deserialization vulnerability has on the security posture of BMC products and services. The vulnerability has been described by various parties in multiple places (see FoxGlove Security's post and the darkreading article for examples) and enables code execution via the InvokerTransformer class.

The vulnerability has been assigned more than one CVE-ID via inclusion in products released by IBM (CVE-2015-7450) and Oracle (CVE-2015-4852).

We will post updates to this webpage with our findings.
