Strange wording in SECURITY-1995 advisory

    XMLWordPrintable

Details

    Description

      The published SECURITY-1995 advisory says:

      requests-plugin Plugin 2.2.6 and earlier does not perform a permission check in an HTTP endpoint.

      This allows attackers with Overall/Read permission to view the list of pending requests.

      requests-plugin Plugin 2.2.7 requires Overall/Read permission to view the list of pending requests.

      This seems to contradict itself. I suspect the second sentence should be:

      This allows attackers without Overall/Read permission to view the list of pending requests.

            The sentence you identified is correct, but the fix is not: It now requires Overall/Administer permission to view.

            https://github.com/jenkins-infra/jenkins.io/pull/4450 fixes it.
