Description Arun Babu Neelicattu 2013-07-19 03:36:43 EDT
The Struts 2 DefaultActionMapper supports a method for short-circuit navigation state changes by prefixing parameters with "action:" or "redirect:", followed by a desired navigational target expression. This mechanism was intended to help with attaching navigational information to buttons within forms.

In Struts 2 before the information following "action:", "redirect:" or "redirectAction:" is not properly sanitized. Since said information will be evaluated as OGNL expression against the value stack, this introduces the possibility to inject server side code.

Comment 1 Arun Babu Neelicattu 2013-07-19 03:51:42 EDT

Not Vulnerable. This issue only affects struts 2, it does not affect the versions of struts as shipped with various Red Hat products.
