Jenkins Accessible without Credentials

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote web server hosts a job scheduling / management system that
is accessible without authentication.

Description :

The remote web server hosts Jenkins, a job scheduling / management
system and a drop-in replacement for Hudson. By allowing
unauthenticated access to the application, anyone may be able to
configure Jenkins and jobs, and perform builds.

Additionally, this script checks for unauthenticated access to
'/scripts' as anyone with access to the script console can run arbitrary
Groovy scripts on the remote host.

access to Jenkins.
