How to fix?

Upgrade com.amazonaws:aws-codebuild to version 0.27 or higher.


com.amazonaws:aws-codebuild provides a build step for the Jenkins project.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Credentials Disclosure. It stored the AWS Secret Key in its configuration unencrypted in job's config.xml files on the Jenkins master. This key could be viewed by users with Extended Read permission, or access to the master file system. While masked from view using a password form field, the AWS Secret Key was transferred in plain text to users when accessing the job configuration form.
