Exploitation of deserialization is somewhat difficult, as off the shelf exploits rarely work without changes or tweaks to the underlying exploit code.
This issue is included in the Top 10 based on an industry survey and not on quantifiable data. Some tools can discover deserialization flaws, but human assistance is frequently needed to validate the problem.
It is expected that prevalence data for deserialization flaws will increase as tooling is developed to help identify and address it.
The impact of deserialization flaws cannot be understated. These flaws can lead to remote code execution attacks, one of the most serious attacks possible. The business impact depends on the protection needs of the application and data.
Applications and APIs will be vulnerable if they deserialize hostile or tampered objects supplied by an attacker.
This can result in two primary types of attacks:
Serialization may be used in applications for:
