How to fix?

Upgrade org.apache.struts:struts2-core to version or higher.


org.apache.struts:struts2-core is a popular open-source framework for developing web applications in the Java programming language.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Cross-site Request Forgery (CSRF). The token check mechanism does not properly validate the token name configuration parameter, which allows remote attackers to perform cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attacks by setting the token name configuration parameter to a session attribute.
