  1. Log in to the SCA web console.
  2. Go to Management > Server Settings.
  3. Click Save to ensure that jetty.xml gets updated.
  4. Click Restart Service to apply the change.

Note:
If jetty.xml is reset before the upgrade, the changes made on jetty.xml will not apply any fixes.

Are these vulnerabilities only applicable to version 1.5 or are they present in earlier versions as well?

For the most part they are due to vulnerabilities present in dependencies (such as Java), so they would affect previous versions as well.

Thanks. Just needed the justification for my business owner.
