Apache Struts Zero Day and Mitigation

Thanks to Gebhard for letting us know about a new vulnerability in Apache Struts.

If you recall the classloader vulnerability of few months ago, the fix for that seems to be case and punctuation sensitive (using [] instead of "."  was not accounted for)

In any case, they have posted a mitigation how-to here: http://struts.apache.org/announce.html#a20140424

This affects all versions up to 2.3.16.1
