5.0.2 Release Notes

Security fixes

Kibana 5.0.0 and 5.0.1 were making requests to advanced settings and the short URL service on behalf of the kibana server rather than the current user, which means that being authenticated at all was sufficient to have both read and write access to the advanced settings and short URLs. Kibana 5.0.2 now authenticates requests for each service on behalf of the current user. ESA-2016-10 (#9214)
