Description Andrej Nemec 2017-02-02 15:12:22 UTC
The following flaw was found in Jenkins:

Jenkins allows the creation of users with less-than and greater-than characters in their names. These user names were not escaped when displaying search suggestions, resulting in a cross-site scripting vulnerability.
