Alert ImpactNot Exploitable
Technical DetailsThe flaw exists but it is not exploitable
Technical Details Explanation1) CVE-2014-0114 - The vulnerability is exploited through the ActionForm class in Struts 1 along with commons-beanutils-1.8.0.jar. In Admin GUI, Struts 1 is used only for the purpose of the tag library, to render the page. Struts 1 is not used to collect input from the user (via ActionForm or any other means). commons-beanutils*.jar is not packaged as well. So, AxM is not impacted.
2) CVE-2008-2025 - This is not a security flaw in Struts 1 per NVD (https://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/detail?vulnId=CVE-2008-2025). Furthermore, in the Admin GUI, the page isn't rendered based on untrusted user inputs. The inputs to render the page via tag library are loaded from DB (or Server) and those are escaped before rendering it on the page. So, AxM is not impacted
