Overview

org.apache.struts.xwork:xwork-core Affected versions of the package are vulnerable to Arbitrary Command Execution. A malicious user may bypass all the protections (regex pattern, deny method invocation) built into the ParametersInterceptor, thus being able to inject a malicious expression in any exposed string variable for further evaluation.
