Apache Struts Content-Type arbitrary command execution (CVE-2017-5638)
|10||(AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)||March 09, 2017||March 09, 2017||October 30, 2017|
The Jakarta Multipart parser in Apache Struts 2 2.3.x before 2.3.32 and 2.5.x before 126.96.36.199 has incorrect exception handling and error-message generation during file-upload attempts, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary commands via a crafted Content-Type, Content-Disposition, or Content-Length HTTP header, as exploited in the wild in March 2017 with a Content-Type header containing a #cmd= string.
