How to fix?

Upgrade org.springframework.data:spring-data-rest-webmvc to version 3.6.7, 3.7.3 or higher.

Overview

org.springframework.data:spring-data-rest-webmvc is a maven plugin for Spring Data REST - WebMVC.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Information Exposure by allowing an attacker to craft HTTP requests that expose hidden entity attributes, given that the attacker knows about the structure of the underlying domain model.

Note: Applications that have generally disabled HTTP PATCH support, either through the corresponding configuration of Spring Data REST, Spring Boot, or through their runtime infrastructure, are not affected.

Workarounds:

Users who are unable to upgrade to the fixed version can disable HTTP PATCH support as described at https://docs.spring.io/spring-data/rest/docs/current/reference/html/#customizing-sdr.http-methods
