How to fix?

Upgrade org.apache.struts.xwork:xwork-core to version 2.2.3.1 or higher.

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 Improper Input Validation. It evaluates a string as an OGNL expression during the handling of a conversion error, which allows remote attackers to modify run-time data values, and consequently execute arbitrary code, via invalid input to a field.
