New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 5.9
SynopsisThe remote web server hosts a web application that is affected by a DLL Hijacking Vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the instance of Atlassian Jira hosted on the remote web server is version 8.3.x prior to 8.5.2. It is, therefore, affected by a DLL hijacking vulnerability. The usage of Tomcat in Jira allows local attackers with permission to write a DLL file to a directory in the global path environmental variable, to inject code via a DLL hijacking vulnerability.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to Atlassian Jira version 8.5.2, 8.6.0 or later
