Synopsis :

The remote web application is affected by multiple cross-site
scripting vulnerabilities.

Description :

According to its self-reported version number, the instance of
Atlassian Confluence on the remote host is version 2.x >= 2.7 or 3.x <
3.4.6 and as such, is affected by multiple cross-site scripting
vulnerabilities.

Errors in the validation of input data to certain macros allow
unfiltered data to be returned to a user's browser. The affected
macros are: Code, Attachments, Bookmarks, Global Reports, Recently

Note that Nessus did not actually test for the flaw, but instead has
relied on the version in Confluence's login page.
