My first time to post regarding my setup. Basically I have the following set up on premise.
Upon closer inspection at my deployment, my Crowd is using Struts, and worst, it's vulnerable. I could be using perhaps Struts version 2.3.29.
It states here that Struts can be updated separately without impacting Crowd. However, upon testing, Crowd stopped working after updating struts only. So my only option is to upgrade Crowd to a non-vulnerable version.
There have been a couple of major security updates with Struts that have been released even after the advisory above, with the latest one released only a few days ago which requires me to update to the latest Struts 2.5.16.
Now, I am at a dilemma, that I may need to upgrade both Crowd as well as Struts!
I am however, hesitant to upgrade/patch as it might break or change the way my users (JIRA, Confluence, Stash) operate which I would not want to take risk at.
My question is:
From the look at your question, I have verified that the version of Crowd you are using is Struts version 220.127.116.11.
You will not need to update struts as this is in build into the crowd. All you need to do is update Crowd and it will be updated.
For functionality wise, I don't think it will impact any operational. However is always better be safe the sorry
