    Are you an Apache Struts user who follows security advisories? If so, they may be giving you a false sense of security.

    Security researchers have reviewed security advisories for Apache Struts and found that two dozen of them inaccurately listed affected versions for the open-source development framework.

    The advisories havesince been updatedto reflect vulnerabilities in an additional 61 unique versions of Struts that were affected by at least one previously disclosed vulnerability but left off the security advisories for those vulnerabilities.

    The extensive analysis was done by the Black Duck Security Research (BDSR) team of Synopsys’ Cybersecurity Research Center (CyRC), which investigated 115 distinct releases for Apache Struts and correlated those releases against 57 existing Apache Struts Security Advisories covering 64 vulnerabilities.
