Atlassian JIRA Server & JIRA Data Center Template Injection Vulnerability

High Nessus Plugin ID 126620

Synopsis

The remote web server hosts a web application that is affected by a template injection vulnerability.

Description

According to its self-reported version number, the version of Atlassian JIRA hosted on the remote web server is 4.4.x < 7.6.14, 7.7.x < 7.13.5, 8.0.x < 8.0.3, 8.1.x < 8.1.2, 8.2.x < 8.2.3. It is, therefore, affected by a server-side template injection vulnerability that exists in the ContactAdministrators and SendBulkMail actions where SMTP server is configured and the Contact Administrators Form is enabled. An unauthenticated, remote attacker may exploit this to bypass authentication and execute arbitrary code.

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

Solution

Upgrade to Atlassian JIRA version 7.6.14, 7.13.5, 8.0.3, 8.1.2, 8.2.3 or later.
