How to fix?

Upgrade org.grails:grails-core to version 3.3.10 or higher.


org.grails:grails-core is a framework used to build web applications with the Groovy programming language. The core framework is very extensible and there are numerous plugins available that provide easy integration of add-on features.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Man-in-the-Middle (MitM). Cleartext HTTP protocol is used within specific versions of Grails core to resolve the SDKMan notification service. It should be noted that dependencies were not resolved or fetched over cleartext HTTP. As such, success exploitation of this vulnerability is low.
