In response, the Apache Struts team released a security advisory recommending that users upgrade to version 2.5.25 or apply a patch to address the vulnerability. As CVE-2020-26259 is a critical flaw that could allow attackers to take complete control over vulnerable systems, it is essential for organizations using the affected versions of the Apache Struts framework to update their software as soon as possible. Overall, the discovery of CVE-2020-26259 highlights the importance of regularly maintaining and updating software to ensure that any known vulnerabilities are patched promptly.
