How to fix?

There is no fixed version for org.bouncycastle:bcprov-jdk15.


org.bouncycastle:bcprov-jdk15 is a package is a Java implementation of cryptographic algorithms. This jar contains JCE provider and lightweight API for the Bouncy Castle Cryptography APIs for JDK 1.5.

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.
