XStream is vulnerable to an Arbitrary File Deletion on the local host when unmarshalling as long as the executing process has sufficient rights
The processed stream at unmarshalling time contains type information to recreate the formerly written objects. XStream creates therefore new instances based on these type information. An attacker can manipulate the processed input stream and replace or inject objects, that result in the deletion of a file on the local host. No user is affected, who followed the recommendation to setup XStream's security framework with a whitelist limited to the minimal required types.
If you rely on XStream's default blacklist of the Security Framework, you will have to use at least version 1.4.16.
See workarounds for the different versions covering all CVEs.
See full information about the nature of the vulnerability and the steps to reproduce it in XStream's documentation for CVE-2021-21343.
