Apache Struts 2.x < 2.2.1 OGNL RCE (S2-005)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 117363
SynopsisA web application running on the remote host uses a Java framework that is affected by a possible remote code execution.
DescriptionThe 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.
SolutionUpgrade to Apache Struts version 2.2.1 or later
