How to fix?

Upgrade org.eclipse.jetty:jetty-http to version 9.3.24.v20180605, 9.4.11.v20180605 or higher.


org.eclipse.jetty:jetty-http is an is a http module for jetty server.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Web Cache Poisoning. An HTTP/1 style request line (i.e. method space URI space version) that declares a version of HTTP/0.9 was accepted and treated as a 0.9 request. If deployed behind an intermediary that also accepted and passed through the 0.9 version, the response sent could be interpreted by the intermediary as HTTP/1 headers. This could be used to poison the cache if the server allowed the origin client to generate arbitrary content in the response.
