    Description

      CVE-2020-1953 enables Remote code execution in Apache Commons Configuration

      Apache Commons Configuration uses a third-party library to parse YAML files which by default allows the instantiation of classes if the YAML includes special statements. Apache Commons Configuration versions 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.5, 2.6 did not change the default settings of this library. So if a YAML file was loaded from an untrusted source, it could therefore load and execute code out of the control of the host application.

      James server don't rely on YAML files for its configuration (only on XML and properties) thus we are likely unaffected by the aforementioned CVE but upgrading would be wise.
