Description Andrej Nemec 2017-02-02 14:42:32 UTC
The following flaw was found in Jenkins:

An insufficient permission check allowed users with the permission to create new items (e.g. jobs) to overwrite existing items they don't have access to. After a Jenkins restart, children of the original item, such as builds, were then accessible in some circumstances.
