The file is very outdated, our security scan shows vulnerbility on the current version.
I see that in the update-core.php , plupload is disabled to auto update, i think this was forgotten to turn back on after resolving a bug found years ago.
Please take a look and update the plupload.js file is possible.
plupload.js pkg:javascript/plupload@2.1.9
thank you

hi @harrisonchen, welcome to WordPress Trac. This is a duplicate of #48277, but the TL;DR is Plupload has had more recent versions under a different license, and 2.1.9 is the latest GPL-compatible version.

In addition, if you believe you have found a legitimate security issue, it is imperative to make security-related reports on Unfortunately, many automated scans are inaccurate, so please make sure to validate the results before reporting.
