RCE Vulnerability in Apache Struts

2 min read

On August 22, 2018, the Apache Software Foundation acknowledged a critical Remote Code Execution (RCE) vulnerability in all versions of Apache Struts 2 [1]. Successful Remote Code Execution could allow threat actors to perform a variety of malicious actions and potentially gain full remote access to the affected system. Previously, exploits for critical vulnerabilities in Apache Struts were developed a short time after disclosure [2]. The prevalence of Apache Struts combined with the potential impact creates considerable motivation for threat actors to weaponize the latest vulnerability. This vulnerability is being publicly tracked as CVE-2018-11776 [3].
