Apache Struts CVE-2017-9805 Remote Code Execution Vulnerability
Description: The REST Plugin is using a XStreamHandler with an instance of XStream for deserialization without any type filtering and this can lead to Remote Code Execution when deserializing XML payloads.

Apache Struts 2.5 through 2.5.12 are vulnerable.
Mitigation: Updates are available. Please check specific vendor advisory for more information.
