Subject [ANN] Apache Struts 2.5.17 GA with Security Fixes Release
Date Wed, 22 Aug 2018 07:35:53 GMT
The Apache Struts group is pleased to announce that Struts 2.5.17 is
available as a “General Availability” release. The GA designation is
our highest quality grade.

In addition to critical overall proactive security improvements, this
release addresses one potential security vulnerability:
- Possible Remote Code Execution when using results with no namespace
and in same time, its upper action(s) have no or wildcard namespace.
Same possibility when using url tag which doesn’t have value and action
set - S2-057 -

Apache Struts 2 is an elegant, extensible framework for creating
enterprise-ready Java web applications. The framework is designed to
streamline the full development cycle, from building, to deploying, to
maintaining applications over time.

All developers are strongly advised to perform this action.

The 2.5.x series of the Apache Struts framework has a minimum
requirement of the following specification versions: Servlet API 2.4,
JSP API 2.0, and Java 7.

Should any issues arise with your use of any version of the Struts
framework, please post your comments to the user list, and, if
appropriate, file a tracking ticket.

You can download this version from our download page.
