How to fix?

Upgrade org.apache.cxf:cxf-rt-ws-security to version 2.4.6, 2.5.2 or higher.

Overview

org.apache.cxf:cxf-rt-ws-security is an services framework that helps you build and develop services using frontend programming APIs, like JAX-WS and JAX-RS.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Authorization Bypass due to not validating Username Token policies correctly. A malicious client could send a request to the endpoint with no UsernameToken, and the UsernameToken policy requirement would still be marked as valid.
