Description

Jenkins before 1.638 and LTS before 1.625.2 do not properly verify the shared secret used in JNLP slave connections, which allows remote attackers to connect as slaves and obtain sensitive information or possibly gain administrative access by leveraging knowledge of the name of a slave.

Solution(s)

  • jenkins-lts-upgrade-1_625_2
  • jenkins-upgrade-1_638

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.
