Overview

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Improper Authorization. Role-based Authorization Strategy Plugin 2.12 and newer uses a cache to speed up permission lookups.In Role-based Authorization Strategy Plugin 3.0 and earlier this cache is not invalidated properly when an administrator changes the permission configuration. This can result in permissions being granted long after the configuration was changed to no longer grant them.Role-based Authorization Strategy Plugin 3.1 properly invalidates the cache on configuration changes.

Remediation

Upgrade org.jenkins-ci.plugins:role-strategy to version 3.1 or higher.
