ResolutionThe vulnerabilities that are listed in the table below are in order by the date on which RSA Access Manager Engineering determined that RSA Access Manager 6.2 SP2 was not vulnerable.
Embedded ComponentCVE IDSummary of VulnerabilityReason why Product is not VulnerableDate Determined False Positive
Apache StrutsCVE-2015-0899The MultiPageValidator implementation in Apache Struts 1 1.1 through 1.3.10 allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions using a modified page parameter.The RSA Access Manager Admin GUI does not use Struts-based validation. Instead RSA Access Manager uses its own validation mechanism, hence the vulnerability reported in the Struts validation component is not impacting the RSA Access Manager GUI applications. In the RSA Access Manager GUI application, Struts is only used as part of the taglib for i18n in JSP files.20 December 2019
Apache StrutsCVE-2016-1181ActionServlet.java in Apache Struts 1 1.x through 1.3.10 mishandles multithreaded access to an ActionForm instance, which allows remote attackers to run arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (unexpected memory access) using a multipart request, a related issue to CVE-2015-0899.The RSA Access Manager Admin GUI does not use ActionForm, and hence RSA Access Manager is not impacted by this vulnerability. 20 December 2019
Apache StrutsCVE-2016-1182ActionServlet.java in Apache Struts 1 1.x through 1.3.10 does not properly restrict the Validator configuration, which allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks or cause a denial of service using crafted input, a related issue to CVE-2015-0899.The RSA Access Manager Admin GUI does not use ActionForm, and hence RSA Access Manager is not impacted by this vulnerability.

Apache StrutsCVE-2011-3923Apache Struts before 2.3.1.2 allows remote attackers to bypass security protections in the ParameterInterceptor class and execute arbitrary commands.The vulnerability does not affect Apache Struts before 2.0.0.  The RSA Access Manager  Admin GUI uses Apache Struts 1.0.2, which does not include the ParameterInterceptor class either in the Apache Struts jar or in the dependent libraries. The flaw does not exist and is not reproducible in the RSA Access Manager Admin GUI.13 February 2020
