How to fix?

Upgrade org.hibernate:hibernate-core to version 5.4.24.Final or higher.


org.hibernate:hibernate-core is a library providing Object/Relational Mapping (ORM) support to applications, libraries, and frameworks.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to SQL Injection. A SQL injection in the implementation of the JPA Criteria API can permit unsanitized literals when a literal is used in the SQL comments of the query. This flaw could allow an attacker to access unauthorized information or possibly conduct further attacks. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to data confidentiality and integrity.
