Apache Struts ClassLoader Manipulation Remote Code Execution

Apache Struts ClassLoader Manipulation Remote Code Execution
Posted May 2, 2014
Authored by Mark Thomas, Przemyslaw Celej | Site metasploit.com

This Metasploit module exploits a remote command execution vulnerability in Apache Struts versions < 2.3.16.2. This issue is caused because the ParametersInterceptor allows access to 'class' parameter which is directly mapped to getClass() method and allows ClassLoader manipulation, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary Java code via crafted parameters.
