This advisory announces vulnerabilities in the following Jenkins deliverables:

Descriptions

CSRF vulnerability in JUnit Plugin

SECURITY-1101 / CVE pending

A URL used to allow setting the description of a test object in JUnit Plugin did not require POST requests, resulting in a cross-site request forgery vulnerability.

That URL now requires POST requests be sent.

CSRF vulnerability and missing permission checks in Jira Plugin allowed capturing credentials

SECURITY-1029 / CVE pending

Jira Plugin did not perform permission checks on a method implementing form validation. This allowed users with Overall/Read access to Jenkins to connect to an attacker-specified URL using attacker-specified credentials IDs obtained through another method, capturing credentials stored in Jenkins.

Additionally, this form validation method did not require POST requests, resulting in a cross-site request forgery vulnerability.

This form validation method now require POST requests and Overall/Administer (for globally defined sites) or Item/Configure permissions (for sites defined for a folder).

Stored XSS vulnerability in Config File Provider Plugin

SECURITY-1080 / CVE pending

Config File Provider Plugin did not escape configuration file metadata, resulting in a stored cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability.

Config File Provider Plugin now escapes configuration file metadata shown on the Jenkins UI.

CSRF vulnerability in Config File Provider Plugin

SECURITY-938 / CVE pending

A URL used to save configuration files based on form submissions did not require POST requests, resulting in a CSRF vulnerability.

CSRF vulnerability and missing permission checks in MQ Notifier Plugin

SECURITY-972 / CVE pending

Users with Overall/Read permission were able to access MQ Notifier Plugin’s form validation URL, having it connect to an attacker-specified MQ system with attacker-specified credentials.

Additionally, this form validation URL did not require POST requests, resulting in a CSRF vulnerability.

The form validation now performs a permission check and requires POST requests to be sent.

Stored XSS vulnerability in Metadata Plugin

SECURITY-1075 / CVE pending

A stored cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in Metadata Plugin allows users with permission to change metadata definitions to insert arbitrary HTML/Javascript into Jenkins pages.

As of publication of this advisory, there is no fix.

Missing permission check in Metadata Plugin allows unauthorized users to change Metadata Plugin configuration

SECURITY-1135 / CVE pending
