Description

According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Atlassian JIRA hosted on the remote web server is prior to 7.4.2. It is therefore, potentially affected by a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the orderby parameter due to improper validation of user-supplied input data.
