How to fix?

Upgrade org.dspace:dspace-jspui to version 5.11, 6.4 or higher.


org.dspace:dspace-jspui is a DSpace JSP Based Webapplication

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Open Redirect via the controlled vocabulary servlet component. Exploiting this vulnerability is possible by crafting a malicious URL that looks like a legitimate DSpace/repository URL, which redirects the target to a site of the attacker's choice when they click it.

Note: This vulnerability does not impact the XMLUI or versions 7.
