How to fix?

A fix was pushed into the master branch but not yet published.


Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Use of a Risky Cryptographic Algorithm where the generated X509 certificates are signed by default using SHA1 with RSA, which is not considered safe anymore for use in certificate signatures, due to the risk of collisions with SHA1. Note: If the upgrade is not possible, it is possible to patch the module xwiki-platform-crypto in a local installation by applying the change exposed in the fixed commit and re-compiling the module.
