Synopsis

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

Description

According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Atlassian JIRA hosted on the remote web server is prior to 7.13.3 or 8.1.0. It is, therefore, affected by a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the applinkStartingUrl parameter due to improper validation of user-supplied input data. An authenticated, 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.

Solution

Upgrade to Atlassian JIRA version 7.13.3 / 8.1.0 or later
