How to fix?

Upgrade org.grails:grails-core to version 1.3.8, 2.0.2 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 Access Restriction Bypass. VMware SpringSource Grails does not properly restrict data binding, which might allow remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions and modify arbitrary object properties via a crafted request parameter to an application.
