Log4J exploit in XRay-Jenkins Plugin

CQ December 13, 2021

Hello team.

How exposed is the plugin and does it need to be patched?   Our team disabled it to prevent problems over the weekend, but would be great to know if we can re-enable it.

Hi @CQ and @Jeff Smith 

The Jenkins plugin has been updated to remove the vulnerability and those updates are now available as follows:
  • Xray for JIRA Jenkins Plugin
    Available on the Jenkins Plugin Manager

 Please check the full information here.

Thank you.

Kind regards,

Hi Rogerio,

I appreciate the response and letting us know about the update. However, it has come to our attention that there are also log4j vulnerabilities with version 2.16 and that 2.17 is now available. Have you investigated whether or not the plugin needs another log4j update?

Hi again Rogerio,

I just found my answer here: https://github.com/jenkinsci/xray-connector-plugin/issues/57

The new plugin (2.5.3) was released a few hours ago.

Thanks again,
