CVE-ID

CVE-2011-5057

• Severity Rating • Fix Information • Vulnerable Software Versions • SCAP Mappings
Description
Apache Struts 2.3.1.1 and earlier provides interfaces that do not properly restrict access to collections such as the session and request collections, which might allow remote attackers to modify run-time data values via a crafted parameter to an application that implements an affected interface, as demonstrated by the SessionAware, RequestAware, ApplicationAware, ServletRequestAware, ServletResponseAware, and ParameterAware interfaces. NOTE: the vendor disputes the significance of this report because of an "easy work-around in existing apps by configuring the interceptor."
