The remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities


The versions of Primavera Gateway installed on the remote host are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the April 2024 CPU advisory.

- Denial of Service in JSON-Java versions up to and including 20230618. A bug in the parser means that an input string of modest size can lead to indefinite amounts of memory being used. (CVE-2023-5072)

- Allocation of Resources Without Limits or Throttling vulnerability in Apache Commons Compress. This issue affects Apache Commons Compress: from 1.21 before 1.26. Users are recommended to upgrade to version 1.26, which fixes the issue. (CVE-2024-26308)
