Description

The version of Apache Struts running on the remote host is 2.x prior to 2.3.16.1. It, therefore, is affected by multiple vulnerabilities including a denial of service (DoS) vulnerability and a ClassLoader manipulation flaw.

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
