Latest Struts exploit - CVE-2017-9805 | impact to DHIS2?

DHIS2 Developers and Community:

I wanted to check if DHIS2 (specifically Version: 2.25 that includes the March 2017 patch for CVE-2017-5638) is vulnerable to the newly identified Struts exploit - CVE-2017-9805?

More information available via these links:
https://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2017/09/06/apache-struts-serialisation-vulnerability-what-you-need-to-know/
and https://struts.apache.org/docs/s2-052.html

As always, thanks for your prompt response and support of DHIS2!

I asked the core team last week and they said DHIS2 does not use the REST plugin that CVE-2017-9805 addresses. If this is not correct, I am sure one of them will correct me in a couple hours.
