Description Arun Babu Neelicattu 2013-07-19 03:39:59 EDT
The Struts 2 DefaultActionMapper used to support a method for short-circuit navigation state changes by prefixing parameters with "redirect:" or "redirectAction:", followed by a desired redirect target expression. This mechanism was intended to help with attaching navigational information to buttons within forms.

In Struts 2 before the information following "redirect:" or "redirectAction:" can easily be manipulated to redirect to an arbitrary location.

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