Description

The Plugins Manager in Jenkins before 1.640 and LTS before 1.625.2 does not verify checksums for plugin files referenced in update site data, which makes it easier for man-in-the-middle attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted plugin.

Solution(s)

  • jenkins-lts-upgrade-1_625_3
  • jenkins-upgrade-1_641

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.
