How to fix?

Upgrade org.apache.nifi:nifi-commons to version 1.10.0 or higher.


org.apache.nifi:nifi-commons is a system to process and distribute data.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Information Exposure. The XMLFileLookupService allows trusted users to inadvertently configure a potentially malicious XML file. The XML file has the ability to make external calls to services (via XXE) and reveal information such as the versions of Java, Jersey, and Apache that the NiFI instance uses.
