How to fix?

Upgrade org.apache.nifi.registry:nifi-registry-web-api to version 0.7.0 or higher.


org.apache.nifi.registry:nifi-registry-web-api is a subproject of Apache NiFi. It is a complementary application that provides a central location for storage and management of shared resources across one or more instances of NiFi and/or MiNiFi.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Insufficient Session Expiration. If NiFi Registry uses an authentication mechanism other than PKI, when the user clicks Log Out, NiFi Registry invalidates the authentication token on the client side but not on the server side. This permits the user's client-side token to be used for up to 12 hours after logging out to make API requests to NiFi Registry.
