Atlassian JIRA < 8.3.2 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 129589


The remote web server hosts a web application that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities


According to its self-reported version number, The version of Atlassian JIRA hosted on the remote web server is 7.6 < 8.3.2. It is therefore affected by the following vulnerabilities:

- An incorrect authorization check on the /rest/issueNav/1/issueTable resource in Jira allows remote attackers to enumerate usernames. (CVE-2019-8446)

- A cross-site request forgery (XSRF) vulnerability exists in Jira due to ServiceExecutor. A remote attacker can exploit this to trigger the creation of export files. (CVE-2019-8447)

- A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability exists due to improper validation of priority icon url of issue priority. 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. (CVE-2019-11584)
- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the Atlassian Troubleshooting and Support Tools plugin due to a missing authorization check. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to initiate periodic log scans and send the results to a user-specified email address disclosing configuration information.(CVE-2019-15005)

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


Upgrade to Atlassian JIRA version 8.3.2 or later.
