CVE-2015-5211

Priority
Description
Under some situations, the Spring Framework 4.2.0 to 4.2.1, 4.0.0 to 4.1.7,
3.2.0 to 3.2.14 and older unsupported versions is vulnerable to a Reflected
File Download (RFD) attack. The attack involves a malicious user crafting a
URL with a batch script extension that results in the response being
downloaded rather than rendered and also includes some input reflected in
the response.
Ubuntu-Description
It was discovered that Spring Framework incorrectly handled certain URLs. A
remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause a reflected file
download.
