CVE-2018-11039

Priority
Description
Spring Framework (versions 5.0.x prior to 5.0.7, versions 4.3.x prior to
4.3.18, and older unsupported versions) allow web applications to change
the HTTP request method to any HTTP method (including TRACE) using the
HiddenHttpMethodFilter in Spring MVC. If an application has a pre-existing
XSS vulnerability, a malicious user (or attacker) can use this filter to
escalate to an XST (Cross Site Tracing) attack.
