Latest details from BMC

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.
We will post updates to this webpage with our findings.
|Products that include InvokerTransformer class||Remediation / Patches|

Neither the vulnerable class nor the Commons Collections serialization/deserialization are used in the BAO code base.
The vulnerable library has been upgraded in the 7.8.02 release of BAO.

|BMC BladeLogic Decision Support for Server Automation (BDSSA)||The product does not accept and deserialize Java objects from untrusted sources. As a precaution the Apache Commons Collections library will be upgraded in the next release of BDSSA (8.8)|
