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


According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Atlassian JIRA hosted on the remote web server is prior to 7.13.9, or 8.x prior to 8.3.3 / 8.4.0. It is, therefore, affected by a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability. The vulnerability exists in the FilterPickerPopup.jspa resource due to improper validation of user-supplied input before returning it to users. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via the searchOwnerUserName parameter, to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session.
