[ANN] [SECURITY] Struts Extras secure Multipart plugins GA
The Apache Struts group is pleased to announce that the Apache Struts
2 Secure Jakarta Multipart parser plugin and Apache Struts 2 Secure
Jakarta Stream Multipart parser plugin are available as a “General
Availability” release. The GA designation is our highest quality
These releases address one critical security vulnerability:
- Possible Remote Code Execution when performing file upload based on
Jakarta Multipart parser S2-045, S2-046 (CVE-2017-5638)
Those plugins were released to allow users running older versions of
the Apache Struts secure their applications in easy way. You don’t
have to migrate to the latest version (which is still preferable) but
by applying one of those plugins, your application won’t be vulnerable
It is a drop-in installation, just select a proper jar file and copy
it to WEB-INF/lib folder. Please read the README
(https://github.com/apache/struts-extras) for more details and
supported Apache Struts versions.
All developers are strongly advised to perform this action.
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.
