Description Kurt Seifried 2013-11-20 00:27:37 EST
Kohsuke Kawaguchi reports:

Insecure storage of passwords in Subversion plugin.

Just noticed, that ssh-key passphrases in <JOB>/subversion.credentials are only coded in base64 an can easily be decoded.
maybe this is fixed already. My setup is old and grown over time. Although i am running 1.500 the config-files may be old.
i did run the "re-keying" process, as jenkins told me to do. Nevertheless, passphrases are still stored in base64
