Medium Nessus Plugin ID 134980


The remote web server hosts a web application that is affected by an improper authorization vulnerability.


According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Atlassian Jira hosted on the remote web server is version 8.2.x prior to 8.5.4. It is, therefore, affected by an improper authorization vulnerability. Support zip files could be downloaded by a system administrator user without requiring the user to re-enter their password.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
