Jenkins Enterprise and Operations Center 2.303.x < 2.303.30.0.16 / 2.346.4.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities (CloudBees Security Advisory 2022-08-27)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 165693


A job scheduling and management system hosted on the remote web server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Jenkins Enterprise or Jenkins Operations Center running on the remote web server is 2.303.x prior to 2.303.30.0.16, or 2.x prior to 2.346.4.1. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities, including the following:

- Loading specially-crafted yaml with the Kubernetes Java Client library can lead to code execution.

- Jenkins Git Plugin 4.11.4 and earlier does not properly mask (i.e., replace with asterisks) credentials in the build log provided by the Git Username and Password (`gitUsernamePassword`) credentials binding.

- Jenkins CollabNet Plugins Plugin 2.0.8 and earlier stores a RabbitMQ password unencrypted in its global configuration file on the Jenkins controller where it can be viewed by users with access to the Jenkins controller file system. (CVE-2022-38665) Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade Jenkins Enterprise or Jenkins Operations Center to version 2.303.30.0.16, 2.346.4.1 or later.
