As announced on the developers mailing list, we will start releasing security advisories about unmaintained plugins with security vulnerabilities without a fix if necessary:
These plugins need to be marked as 'unsafe' in Jenkins.
- backend-update-center2 needs to be extended (perhaps as separate Downloadable?)
- Core needs to be extended to
- consume the new metadata
- show warnings in appropriate places (admin monitor for installed plugins, plugin manager for updates and available/installed plugins)
