Date: Tue, 27 Mar 2018 12:16:58 +0200 From: Lukasz Lenart <lukaszlenart@...che.org> To: Struts Users Mailing List <user@...uts.apache.org> Cc: announce@...che.org, announcements@...uts.apache.org, oss-security@...ts.openwall.com, "Munoz, Alvaro" <alvaro.munoz@...rofocus.com>, "Grushka, Yevgeniy" <grushka@...rofocus.com> Subject: [ANN] A crafted XML request can be used to perform a DoS attack when using the Struts REST plugin The Apache Security Struts Team recommends to immediately upgrade your Struts 2 based projects to use the latest released version of the Apache Struts. This is necessary to prevent your publicly accessible web site, which is using the Struts REST plugin and performing XML serialisation, from being exposed to possible DoS attack. You can find more details in a Security Bulletin S2-056 - https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/WW/S2-056 All developers are strongly advised to perform this action.
