Description Andrej Nemec 2017-02-02 15:16:18 UTC
The following flaw was found in Jenkins:

Jenkins allows administrators to enter their username and password to the Oracle download site which provides JDKs for download. Users with read access to Jenkins were able to override these credentials, resulting in future builds possibly failing to download a JDK. A permission check has been added.
