Overview

org.apache.struts.xwork:xwork-core is a generic command pattern framework. It forms the core of Struts 2.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Arbitrary Code Execution. ** DISPUTED ** The DebuggingInterceptor component in Apache Struts before 2.3.1.1, when developer mode is used, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary commands via unspecified vectors. NOTE: the vendor characterizes this behavior as not "a security vulnerability itself."
