Jquery UI issue with Google Lighthouse

Googles Web Vitals will become rancing factor in Google starting May. Web Vitals are based on Lighthouse and Lighthouse is based on 4 elements, one is called "Pest Practices". Under this section it reports the following:


Includes front-end JavaScript libraries with known security vulnerabilities 1 vulnerability detected

Library Version: jQuery UI@1.11.4
Vulnerability Count: 1
Highest Severity: High


There are no plugins which updates this. Looks like you need to de-register the default WP version and register an own. Think this is to much for most users and should pe fixed within WP 5.7.

I place this ticket as "bug" because there is no typ "security" available and it is not an enhancement or feature request.
