Overview

org.apache.struts.xwork:xwork-core ParametersInterceptor in Apache Struts before 2.3.16.2 does not properly restrict access to the getClass method, which allows remote attackers to "manipulate" the ClassLoader and execute arbitrary code via a crafted request. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2014-0094.
