How to fix?

A fix was pushed into the master branch but not yet published.


com.microfocus.webjars:swagger-ui-dist is a module that exposes Swagger-UI's entire dist folder as a dependency-free npm module. Use swagger-ui instead, if you'd like to have npm install dependencies for you.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to User Interface (UI) Misrepresentation of Critical Information via the ?url parameter, which was intended to allow displaying remote OpenAPI definitions. This functionality may pose a risk for users who host their own SwaggerUI instances. In particular, including remote OpenAPI definitions opens a vector for phishing attacks by abusing the trusted names/domains of self-hosted instances.
