Apache Struts 2.x < 2.3.15.2 Dynamic Method Invocation Multiple Vulnerabilities (S2-019)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 117402

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Apache Struts running on the remote host is 2.x prior to 2.3.15.2. 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.

Solution

Upgrade to Apache Struts version 2.3.15.2 or later or follow the vendors instructions to disable DMI.
