How to fix?

Upgrade Cordova to version 3.3.0 or higher.


Cordova is a CocoaPods package for Cordova iOS

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Improper Input Validation. It is possible to bypass whitelist protection mechanism within Cordova due to missing validations. The vulnerability is possible because it does not anchor the end of domain-name regular expressions. Therefore, it allows attacker to bypass the protection by using a domain name that has an acceptable name as an initial substring.
