It was found that the fix for CVE-2014-0114 had been reverted in JBoss Operations Network 3 (JON). This flaw allows attackers to manipulate ClassLoader properties on a vulnerable server. Exploits that have been published rely on ClassLoader properties that are exposed such as those in JON 3. Additional information can be found in the Red Hat Knowledgebase article: https://access.redhat.com/site/solutions/869353. Note that while multiple products released patches for the original CVE-2014-0114 flaw, the reversion described by this CVE-2019-3834 flaw only occurred in JON 3.

Description Chess Hazlett 2019-02-15 17:12:20 UTC
JON had resolved struts1 flaw CVE-2014-0114 with https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2014-0511.html, but reverted the fix in a later release.

Comment 7 Chess Hazlett 2019-05-16 20:37:36 UTC

While the original flaw, CVE-2014-0114, was resolved as a precaution in JON 3.2.1, later further research revealed that JON did not expose the properties in an exploitable way, and was not vulnerable.
