Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : struts (MDVSA-2014:095)

High Nessus Plugin ID 74073


The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Updated struts packages fix security vulnerability :

It was found that the Struts 1 ActionForm object allowed access to the 'class' parameter, which is directly mapped to the getClass() method.
A remote attacker could use this flaw to manipulate the ClassLoader used by an application server running Struts 1. This could lead to remote code execution under certain conditions (CVE-2014-0114).


Update the affected struts and / or struts-javadoc packages.
