Multiple Vulnerabilities in Apache Struts Could Allow for Remote Code Execution

  • A denial of service vulnerability exists due to an outdated JSON-lib library utilized by a REST plugin. (CVE-2017-15707)
  • A remote code execution vulnerability exists because the REST Plugin utilizes Jackson JSON library for data binding. (CVE-2017-7525)


But could not find the CVE's in the Threat Vault.  Would like to understand how PaloAlto determines which CVE's should be included in the Threat Updates.

hi @mario.chancay


some CVE may not have identifiable factors in the network packets: there may be legitimate packets that are able to buffer overflow a certain vulnerable version of client/server but are not malicious in nature, or they may not have been disclosed publicly yet


i've tried to review these CVE but they are marked as reserved on mitre, I then tried tracing the original bug bt I don't appear to have access to chromium bugs 😉

My assumption is these have not been disclosed yet, to allow google to fix the bugs
