How to fix?

Upgrade hudson.plugins:project-inheritance to version 19.08.02 or higher.


hudson.plugins:project-inheritance is a Project Inheritance Plugin

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Cross-site Request Forgery (CSRF). A missing permission check in the HTTP endpoint triggering project creation allows users with Overall/Read permission to create these projects. Additionally, the HTTP endpoint receiving these requests did not require POST requests, this can be used to conduct a CSRF attack.
