The recent Equifax data breach may have exposed Personally Identifiable Information (PII) on over 143 millions Americans. 

It appears that this breach was caused by a Struts vulnerability – which allows a remote user to run code on a site. This vulnerability would be categorized under #9 of the OWASP Top 10 list of the Most Critical Web Application Security Risks.

Matt Konda, Jemurai CEO & OWASP GlobalChair, created a short video training for developers, where he shares his thoughts on mitigating this vulnerability.
