Atlassian JIRA 6.2.1 < 7.4.4 Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) Vulnerability (JRASERVER-66719)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 132674


The remote web server hosts a web application that is potentially affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability.


According to its self-reported version number, the version of Atlassian JIRA hosted on the remote web server is prior to 6.2.1 or later but prior to 7.4.4. It is, therefore, potentially affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability related to handling of the 'messagesThreshold' parameter in the IncomingMailServer 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 Jira version 7.4.4 or later.
