It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the ALAS2023-2023-280 advisory.

  • Bouncy Castle For Java before 1.74 is affected by an LDAP injection vulnerability. The vulnerability only affects applications that use an LDAP CertStore from Bouncy Castle to validate X.509 certificates. During the certificate validation process, Bouncy Castle inserts the certificateโ€™s Subject Name into an LDAP search filter without any escaping, which leads to an LDAP injection vulnerability. (CVE-2023-33201)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the applicationโ€™s self-reported version number.
