Apache Struts 2.0.x < 2.0.12 Multiple Vulnerabilities (S2-003) (S2-004)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 117390


A web application running on the remote host uses a Java framework that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Apache Struts running on the remote host is 2.0.x prior to 2.0.12. It, therefore, is affected by a possible OGNL expression execution vulnerability due to improper validation of user-supplied by the ParameterInterceptor class. Additionally, the application may also be affected by a possible directory traversal vulnerability.

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 2.0.12 or later
