Vulnerability Details

CVEID: CVE-2014-0114
DESCRIPTION: Apache Struts could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary
code on the system, caused by the failure to restrict the setting of Class
Loader attributes. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability using the
class parameter of an ActionForm object to manipulate the ClassLoader and
execute arbitrary code on the system.
CVSS Base Score: 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/
92889 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)

CVEID: CVE-2012-1007
DESCRIPTION: Apache Struts is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by
improper validation of user-supplied input by the upload-submit.do,
processSimple.do and struts-cookbook/processDyna.do scripts. A remote attacker
could exploit this vulnerability using the name or message parameter in a
specially-crafted URL to execute script in a victim''s Web browser within the
security context of the hosting Web site, once the URL is clicked. An attacker
could use this vulnerability to steal the victim''s cookie-based
authentication credentials.
CVSS Base Score: 4.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/
73052 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined

CVEID: CVE-2016-1182
DESCRIPTION: Apache Struts could allow a remote attacker to bypass security
restrictions, caused by the failure to properly properly restrict the
Validator configuration bin ActionServlet.java. An attacker could exploit this
vulnerability to modify validation rules and error messages.
CVSS Base Score: 4.8
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/
113853 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:L/A:L)

CVEID: CVE-2016-1181
DESCRIPTION: Apache Struts could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary
code on the system, caused by the failure to protect against unintended remote
operations against components on server memory by the ActionForm instance. An
attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on the
system.
CVSS Base Score: 8.1
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/
113852 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
