Cloudbees puts out security alerts frequently for Jenkins. We didn’t patch at CodeRanch for a while and then it got overwhelming. I wanted to get the latest JUnit plugin today. After upgrading to the latest Jenkins core, I went to manage Jenkins and saw this.
I was pleased. The product itself reminded me that we should check our security settings. It also reminded of all the security alerts that we missed.
We are now up to date (as of this moment) and it took less than hour. If I wasn’t counting the Jenkins core install and test, it would have been even less.
