How to fix?

Upgrade org.hibernate:hibernate-validator to version 4.3.2.Final, 5.1.2.Final or higher.


org.hibernate:hibernate-validator is a Hibernate Validator Engine Relocation Artifact.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to JSM bypass via ReflectionHelper. ReflectionHelper (org.hibernate.validator.util.ReflectionHelper) in Hibernate Validator 4.1.0 before 4.2.1, 4.3.x before 4.3.2, and 5.x before 5.1.2 allows attackers to bypass Java Security Manager (JSM) restrictions and execute restricted reflection calls via a crafted application.
