How to fix?

Upgrade com.sonyericsson.jenkins.plugins.bfa:build-failure-analyzer to version 1.24.2 or higher.


com.sonyericsson.jenkins.plugins.bfa:build-failure-analyzer is a that analyzes the causes of failed builds and presents the causes on the build page.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF). The plugin does not perform a permission check in a method performing form validation. This allows users with Overall/Read access to supply a computationally expensive regular expression that will hang the request handling thread.

Additionally, this form validation method does not require POST requests, resulting in a CSRF vulnerability.
