How to fix?

Upgrade org.apache.tika:tika-core to version 1.22 or higher.


org.apache.tika:tika-core is a toolkit for detecting and extracting metadata and structured text content from various documents using existing parser libraries.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Stack Overflow due to a carefully crafted package/compressed file that, when unzipped/uncompressed yields the same file.
