Apache Struts 2.x < 2.2.1 OGNL RCE (S2-005)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 117363


A web application running on the remote host uses a Java framework
that is affected by a possible remote code execution.


The version of Apache Struts running on the remote host is 2.x
prior to 2.2.1. It, therefore, is affected by a possible remote code
execution vulnerability when OGNL expressions are evaluated due to
improper validation by the ParametersInterceptor class.

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


Upgrade to Apache Struts version 2.2.1 or later
