How to fix?

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


org.eclipse.jetty:jetty-server is a lightweight highly scalable java based web server and servlet engine.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Information Exposure. When an intentionally bad query arrives that doesn't match a dynamic url-pattern, and is eventually handled by the DefaultServlet's static file serving, the bad characters can trigger a java.nio.file.InvalidPathException which includes the full path to the base resource directory that the DefaultServlet and/or webapp is using. If this InvalidPathException is then handled by the default Error Handler, the InvalidPathException message is included in the error response, revealing the full server path to the requesting system.
