Description (partial)


Multiple Cisco products include an implementation of the Apache Struts 2 component that is affected by a remote command execution vulnerability
identified by Apache with Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures ID CVE-2010-1870.

The vulnerability is due to insufficient sanitization on user-supplied input in the XWorks component of the affected software. The component uses
the ParameterInterceptors directive to parse the Object-Graph Navigation Language (OGNL) expressions that are implemented via a whitelist
feature. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending crafted requests that contain OGNL expressions to an affected system. An exploit
could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code on the targeted system.

Cisco has released free software updates that address this vulnerability for all the affected products except Cisco Business Edition 3000 Series.
Customers using Cisco Business Edition 3000 Series should contact their Cisco representative for available options.
