How to fix?

Upgrade com.alibaba.nacos:nacos-common to version 1.4.1 or higher.

Overview

com.alibaba.nacos:nacos-common is a service discovery, configuration and service management platform for building cloud native applications.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Authentication Bypass. When configured to use authentication (-Dnacos.core.auth.enabled=true) Nacos uses the AuthFilter servlet filter to enforce authentication. This filter has a backdoor that enables Nacos servers to bypass this filter and therefore skip authentication checks. This mechanism relies on the user-agent HTTP header so it can be easily spoofed.
