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 Improper Authentication. The URIMappingInterceptor, when using the WSS4JInInterceptor, bypasses WS-Security processing, which allows remote attackers to obtain access to SOAP services via an HTTP GET request.
