A struts-2 security alert has been raised, CVE-2017-9805. I've noticed that the version of Crowd that we are using, 2.11.1, has the affected struts libraries within the installation. Do the newer versions use later, unaffected versions of struts-2 and if not, is there a patch available? If none is available is there an eta for a version that is not affected?
Hi @John Sewchand,
The CVE-2017-9805 is not in struts core, but in the rest plugin, which is not used in Crowd (also not in 2.11.1). Therefore Crowd is not affected by this vulnerability.
