How to fix?

Upgrade org.bouncycastle:bcprov-ext-jdk14 to version 1.48 or higher.


org.bouncycastle:bcprov-ext-jdk14 is a Java implementation of cryptographic algorithms.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Cryptographic Issues. The TLS implementation does not properly consider timing side-channel attacks on a noncompliant MAC check operation during the processing of malformed CBC padding, which allows remote attackers to conduct distinguishing attacks and plaintext-recovery attacks via statistical analysis of timing data for crafted packets, a related issue to CVE-2013-0169.
