Debian DLA-57-1 : libstruts1.2-java security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 82203
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

It was discovered that missing access checks in the Struts ActionForm object could result in the execution of arbitrary code. This update fixes this problem.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected libstruts1.2-java package.
