Apache Struts: code execution via Jakarta Multipart CT

Synthesis of the vulnerability

An attacker can use a malicious Content-Type header on Apache Struts with Jakarta Multipart installed, in order to run code.
Severity: 4/4.
Creation date: 08/03/2017.
Revision date: 14/03/2017.
Identifiers: 498123, CERTFR-2017-ALE-004, CERTFR-2017-AVI-071, cisco-sa-20170310-struts2, cpuapr2017, cpujul2017, CVE-2017-5638, ESA-2017-042, S2-045, S2-046, VIGILANCE-VUL-22047, VMSA-2017-0004, VMSA-2017-0004.6, VU#834067.
Full Vigil@nce bulletin... (Free trial)

Description of the vulnerability

The Apache Struts product can be configured to use the Multipart parser of Jakarta.

The HTTP Content-Type header can contain the multipart/form-data MIME type to indicate form data. In this case, the Multipart parser of Jakarta is called.

When the Multipart parser of Jakarta is used, and when the Content-Type header contains a malformed multipart/form-data header, an exception occurs, and the header content is interpreted during the display.

An attacker can therefore use a malicious Content-Type header on Apache Struts with Jakarta Multipart installed, in order to run code.
