Atlassian JIRA Server & JIRA Data Center Template Injection Vulnerability

critical Nessus Plugin ID 126620
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

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.
