                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Important: struts security update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2014:0474-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2014-0474.html
Issue date:        2014-05-07
CVE Names:         CVE-2014-0114 
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated struts packages that fix one security issue are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
Important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the
CVE link in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - i386, ia64, ppc, s390x, x86_64

3. Description:

Apache Struts is a framework for building web applications with Java.

It was found that the Struts 1 ActionForm object allowed access to the
'class' parameter, which is directly mapped to the getClass() method. A
remote attacker could use this flaw to manipulate the ClassLoader used by
an application server running Struts 1. This could lead to remote code
execution under certain conditions. (CVE-2014-0114)

All struts users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue. All running applications
using struts must be restarted for this update to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/site/articles/11258

5. Bugs fixed (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
