* A deserialization flaw was discovered in jackson-databind which could
allow an unauthenticated user to perform code execution by sending
maliciously crafted input to the readValue method of the ObjectMapper.
* It was found that use of a JMS ObjectMessage does not safely handle
user-supplied data when deserializing objects. A remote attacker could use
this flaw to execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the application
using the JMS ObjectMessage. (CVE-2016-4978)
