How to fix?

Upgrade org.elasticsearch:elasticsearch to version 7.11.2, 6.8.15 or higher.


org.elasticsearch:elasticsearch is a Distributed, RESTful Search Engine.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Information Disclosure. A document disclosure flaw was found in Elasticsearch when Document or Field Level Security is used. Search queries do not properly preserve security permissions when executing certain cross-cluster search queries. This could result in the search disclosing the existence of documents the attacker should not be able to view. This could result in an attacker gaining additional insight into potentially sensitive indices.
