How to fix?

Upgrade org.graalvm.sdk:graal-sdk to version 20.3.5, 21.3.1 or higher.


org.graalvm.sdk:graal-sdk is a high-performance JDK distribution designed to accelerate the execution of applications written in Java and other JVM languages along with support for JavaScript, Ruby, Python, and a number of other popular languages.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Allocation of Resources Without Limits or Throttling. A flaw was found in the way the TIFFFaxDecompressor, TIFFLZWDecompressor, and TIFFPackBitsDecompressor classes implementations in the ImageIO component of OpenJDK handled memory allocations when processing TIFF images. A specially-crafted TIFF image with a small size could cause a Java application to allocate an excessive amount of memory when opened.
