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.
