Overview

org.hibernate.validator:hibernate-validator is a Hibernate Validator Engine Relocation Artifact.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Improper Input Validation. A bug in the message interpolation processor enables invalid EL expressions to be evaluated as if they were valid. This flaw allows attackers to bypass input sanitation (escaping, stripping) controls that developers may have put in place when handling user-controlled data in error messages.

Remediation

Upgrade org.hibernate.validator:hibernate-validator to version 6.0.19.Final, 6.1.3.Final or higher.
