Description

Jenkins before 2.3 and LTS before 1.651.2 allows remote authenticated users to trigger updating of update site metadata by leveraging a missing permissions check. NOTE: this issue can be combined with DNS cache poisoning to cause a denial of service (service disruption).

Solution(s)

  • jenkins-lts-upgrade-1_651_2
  • jenkins-upgrade-2_3

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.
