How to fix?

Upgrade strapi to version 3.6.9 or higher.


strapi is a HTTP layer sits on top of Koa.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Information Exposure due to the storage of passwords in a recoverable format in the documentation plugin component. Exploiting this vulnerability allows an attacker to access a victim's HTTP request, get the victim's cookie, perform a base64 decode on the victim's cookie, and obtain a cleartext password, leading to getting API documentation for further API attacks.
