Description

The HudsonPrivateSecurityRealm class in Jenkins before 1.600 and LTS before 1.596.1 does not restrict access to reserved names when using the "Jenkins' own user database" setting, which allows remote attackers to gain privileges by creating a reserved name.

Solution(s)

  • jenkins-lts-upgrade-1_596_1
  • jenkins-upgrade-1_600

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
