GeoServer still using Apache Struts and effected security issues?

Nachtigall, Jens (init)

Hi,

 

a customer (operations/hosting department) is asking whether geoserver (running on tomcat7) is effected by a security issue in Apache Struts[1][2].

 

I’m surprised because AFAIK geoserver does not use struts anymore for a long time now, right? http://blog.geoserver.org/2008/08/11/a-new-ui-is-dawning/

 

OTOH, I still find several references to struts in the geoserver source code:

https://github.com/geoserver/geoserver/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=struts&type=

 

So is struts still being used, and if so, is geoserver effected by the struts security issues?

 

Kind regards,

Jens

Hi, 
no, GeoServer does not use struts anymore, the references you've found are not in the code,
but in commens and configuration files. If a good soul wants to make a pull request and remove
them to avoid any further confusion, that would be appreciated :-)

Regards
Andrea
