How to fix?
org.dspace:dspace-api to version 7.0-preview-1 or higher.
org.dspace:dspace-api is a DSpace core data model and service APIs.
Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Access Restriction Bypass. Multiple access control issues exist in
dspace-api development versions. These issues include:
- The SolrServiceResourceRestrictionPlugin doesn't check for dates on permissions, causing the embargoed items to be returned
- Discovery ignores the PreAuthorize permissions check which should ensure the item cannot be returned, not even when it's embedded
Note: These issues only exist in unreleased/development versions of DSpace v7.0, and it does not impact any production releases outside of beta/preview releases.
