A web application running on the remote host is affected by a reflected cross-site scripting vulnerability.


According to its self-reported version number, the Atlassian Confluence application running on the remote host is prior to 6.3.4.
It is, therefore, affected by a reflected cross-site scripting vulnerability in the usermacros resource.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to Atlassian Confluence version 6.3.4 or later.
