Nexus Sonatype has reported Security issue with metadata-extractor version used by Tika

*Severity :* CVE CVSS 3.0: 7.5Sonatype CVSS 3.0: 7.5

*Weakness :* CVE CWE: 400

*Source :* National Vulnerability Database

*Categories :* Data

*Description from CVE :* MetadataExtractor 2.1.0 allows stack consumption.

*Explanation :* The MetadataExtractor package is vulnerable to a Denial of Service [DoS] attack.
The GetWbTypeDescription[] function in the PanasonicRawWbInfo2Descriptor.cs and PanasonicRawWbInfoDescriptor.cs
files fails to prevent infinite recursion when processing malformed light source information
from PanasonicRawWbInfo metadata. A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability by submitting
PanasonicRawWbInfo metadata containing light source information that exploits this issue.
This will cause the application to consume a large amount of available resources, ultimately
resulting in a DoS condition.

*Detection :* The application is vulnerable by using this component.

*Recommendation :* There is no non-vulnerable version of this component. We recommend investigating
alternative components or potential mitigating control.

*Root Cause :* tika-app-1.22.jarcom/drew/metadata/exif/PanasonicRawDistortionDescriptor.class
: [2.10.0 , ]

*Advisories :* Project: [https://github.com/drewnoakes/metadata-extractor/issues/419]

*CVSS Details :* CVE CVSS 3.0: 7.5CVSS Vector: CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H
