How to fix?
org.elasticsearch:elasticsearch to version 5.6.15, 6.6.1 or higher.
org.elasticsearch:elasticsearch is a Distributed, RESTful Search Engine.
Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Privilege Escalation. A permission issue was found in Elasticsearch when Field Level Security and Document Level Security are disabled and the
_split endpoints are used .
elasticsearch.yml file has
xpack.security.dls_fls.enabled set to false, certain permission checks are skipped when users perform one of the actions mentioned above, to make existing data available under a new
index/alias name. This could result in an attacker gaining additional permissions against a restricted index.
