How to fix?

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

Overview

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 Infinite loop. A flaw was found in the way the XMLEntityScanner and XML11EntityScanner classes in the JAXP component handles and normalized newlines in XML entities. A specially-crafted XML document could cause a Java application to enter an infinite loop when parsed.
