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 as it does not validate a point is within the elliptic curve, which makes it easier for remote attackers to obtain private keys via a series of crafted elliptic curve Diffie Hellman (ECDH) key exchanges, aka an "invalid curve attack".
