Description Kurt Seifried 2012-12-28 00:49:05 EST
Jenkins Security Advisory 2012-11-20

The first vulnerability is commonly known as HTTP response splitting 
vulnerability, which can act as a cross-site scripting vulnerability. This 
allows an anonymous attacker to inject malicious HTMLs to pages served by 
Jenkins. This in turn allows an attacker to escalate his privileges by 
hijacking sessions of other users. To mount this attack, the attacker needs 
to know the exact URL of your Jenkins installation. This vulnerability 
affects those who run Jenkins on its built-in servlet container (this 
includes all the native packages.)

Main line users should upgrade to Jenkins 1.491
LTS users should upgrade to 1.480.1
