Written by Emma Davis

The Jenkins security team announced the discovery of 34 vulnerabilities affecting 29 popular plugins. Worse, 29 of the problems found are 0-day vulnerabilities, so these are very fresh bugs, for which there is still no patches.

The developers say that according to the CVSS vulnerability rating scale, the severity of problems varies from low to high, and in total, vulnerable plugins are installed over 22,000 times.

Let me remind you that we also wrote that Critical PHP Vulnerability Allows Code to Run on Qnap Devices, and also that Critical 0-day vulnerability found in Spring Java framework.

The list of flaws that Jenkins now needs to fix included XSS, “stored” XSS, CSRF, missing or incorrect permission checks, and passwords, secrets, API keys, and tokens stored by plugins in plain text format.

Most high-severity 0-day exploits still require user interaction.the Jenkins developers also emphasize.

Although none of the vulnerabilities are critical (such bugs allow attackers to remotely execute code or commands on vulnerable servers), the bugs found can still be used to attack corporate networks.

The Jenkins team has already submitted patches for four plugins (GitLab, request-plugin, TestNG Results, and XebiaLabs XL Release), but the list of vulnerable plugins is still long:
