How to fix?

Upgrade org.apache.sling:org.apache.sling.commons.messaging.mail to version 2.0.0 or higher.

Overview

org.apache.sling:org.apache.sling.commons.messaging.mail is a part of Apache Sling project. This module provides a simple layer on top of Jakarta Mail 2.0 (package jakarta.mail) including a message builder and a service to send mails via SMTPS.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Insecure Defaults due to a missing validation of the SMTPS server hostname certificate during the handling of the TLS connection to the SMTPS server.
