We believe that this issue can be exploited in a Keptn execution plane to some conditions.
The severity of the vulnerability of jmeter-service is:
Overall CVSS Score: 4.0 and CVSS v3.1 Vector:
Note: The calculation of the CVSS is based on a Keptn 0.11 installation.
The release of jmeter-service in version 0.11.4 contains the new JMeter version v5.4.2. We recommend upgrading your Keptn control plane to 0.11.x as soon as possible allowing you to upgrade the jmeter-service to version 0.11.4.
