How to fix?

Upgrade jquery-ui to version 1.13.2 or higher.

Overview

jquery-ui is a library for manipulating UI elements via jQuery.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Cross-site Scripting (XSS) via the initialization of check-box-radio widget on an input tag enclosed within a label, which leads to the parent label contents being considered as the input label.

Exploiting this vulnerability is possible if a .checkboxradio( "refresh" ) call is executed on such a widget, and the initial HTML contains encoded HTML entities, leading them to be erroneously decoded.
