>                 URL:
>             Project: Struts 2
>          Issue Type: Dependency
>            Reporter: Nicola

> Hi, my name is Nick,
> first Jira here.
> I installed secure-jakarta-multipart-parser-plugin-1.1 software to patch CVE-2017-5638
security issue.
> Since it's an official plugin, I expected to find some documentation on how it works
and what kind of response to expect from the server. But I didn't find any, I guess because
the preferred patch is to actually update Struts version to a more secure one, which I can't
do unfortunately.
> PROBLEM: I'm getting several different exceptions when I try to attack the system.
> Sometimes I just get the HTML. So I guess the attack has not worked (and the patch did
stop it), but it's hard for me to understand why I get such different responses from the server.
> My main doubt is why sometimes the server returns an error and sometimes it just returns
the html.
> Am i doing this right? Is this how it's supposed to work? Or is this an issue that should
> handled somehow at the application level?
> Thanks in advance
