Atlassian JIRA 7.7.x < 7.13.1 XSS vulnerability (JRASERVER-69238)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 129297


The remote web server hosts a web application that is potentially affected by an XSS vulnerability


According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Atlassian JIRA hosted on the remote web server is prior to 7.13.1. It is therefore, potentially affected by a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the cyclePeriod parameter due to improper validation of user-supplied input data. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to click a specially crafted URL, to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session.


Upgrade to Atlassian JIRA version 7.13.1 / 8.0.0 or later
