- Vendor Statements

This is not a security flaw in Struts. Struts has never guaranteed to perform filtering of the untrusted user inputs used as html tag attributes names or values. If user inputs need to be used as part of the tag attributes, the JSP page needs to perform filtering explicitly. For further details, see: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=CVE-2008-2025
