How to fix?

Upgrade generator-jhipster to version 6.3.0 or higher.

Overview

generator-jhipster is a development platform to generate, develop and deploy Spring Boot + Angular / React / Vue Web applications and Spring microservices.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Insecure Randomness. Uses an insecure source of randomness to generate all of its random values as it relies upon apache commons lang3 RandomStringUtils. This allows an attacker (if able to obtain their own password reset URL) to compute the value for all other password resets for other accounts, thus allowing privilege escalation or account takeover.
