Description

Jenkins before 1.650 and LTS before 1.642.2 do not use a constant-time algorithm to verify CSRF tokens, which makes it easier for remote attackers to bypass a CSRF protection mechanism via a brute-force approach.

Solution(s)

  • jenkins-lts-upgrade-1_642_2
  • jenkins-upgrade-1_650

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.
