How to fix?

Upgrade org.apache.myfaces.shared:myfaces-shared-impl to version 2.0.1 or higher.


org.apache.myfaces.shared:myfaces-shared-impl is a Shared Project renamed for use in the MyFaces Impl jar.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Cryptographic Issues as it uses an encrypted View State without a Message Authentication Code (MAC), which makes it easier for remote attackers to perform successful modifications of the View State via a padding oracle attack.
