Review comment:
   I think you guys know better what log level is more appropriate for Struts devs. What I
can tell you is that this code is not expected to reject many requests under normal circumstances,
as every time this happens an endpoint is being fetched cross-origin, which indicates a potential
CSRF attack more often than not and developers are expected to add endpoints that are exposed
cross-origin to the exemption list. 
   That is to say: we wouldn't really expect this log statement to be hit to the point of
flooding the logs.
