Apache Struts 2.x < Dynamic Method Invocation Multiple Vulnerabilities (S2-019)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 117402


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


The version of Apache Struts running on the remote host is 2.x prior to It, therefore, is affected by multiple Dynamic Method Invocation (DMI) vulnerabilities as DMI is enabled by default.

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 or later or follow the vendors instructions to disable DMI.
