This update backports changes from the commons-collections 3.2.2 release which disable the deserialisation of the functors classes unless the system property org.apache.commons.collections.enableUnsafeSerialization is set to

Classes considered unsafe are: CloneTransformer, ForClosure, InstantiateFactory, InstantiateTransformer, InvokerTransformer, PrototypeCloneFactory, PrototypeSerializationFactory and WhileClosure.
