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. It allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary OGNL code via a request with a crafted value that contains both "${}" and "%{}" sequences, which causes the OGNL code to be evaluated twice.
