Apache Struts 2.3.20 Incorrect Default Exclude Pattern

This script is Copyright (C) 2015-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote web server hosts a web application that uses a Java
framework that contains incorrect default exclude patterns.

Description :

The remote web server is using Apache Struts version 2.3.20. It is,
therefore, affected by an issue where the default exclude patterns are
incorrect when using default settings. This allows a remote attacker
to impact the internal application's state.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied
only on the application's self-reported version number.
