How to fix?

Upgrade org.datadog.jenkins.plugins:datadog to version 0.5.7 or higher.


org.datadog.jenkins.plugins:datadog is a Jenkins plugin used to forward metrics, events, and service checks to an account at Datadog, automatically.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Information Exposure. The Datadog Plugin stores an API key to access the Datadog service in the global Jenkins configuration. While the API key is stored encrypted on disk, it was transmitted in plain text as part of the configuration form. This could result in exposure of the API key through browser extensions, cross-site scripting vulnerabilities, and similar situations.
