DESCRIPTION:
A vulnerability has been reported in Apache Struts, which can be
exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting
attacks.

Action or method names passed via the "<s:submit>" tag using bash
syntax are not properly sanitised by XWork before being used to
generate error pages when the actions or methods are not defined.
This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a
user's browser session in context of an affected site.

Successful exploitation requires that Dynamic Method Invocation is
enabled (enabled by default).

The vulnerability is reported in versions 2.0.0 through 2.2.1.1.

SOLUTION:
Update to version 2.2.3.

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY:
The vendor credits Dr. Marian Ventuneac, Genworth.
