Atlassian JIRA < 8.7.0 SSRF (JRASERVER-71204)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 138328


The remote web server hosts a web application that is affected by a server-side request forgery vulnerability.


According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Atlassian JIRA hosted on the remote web server is prior to 8.7.0. It is, therefore, affected by a server-side request forgery vulnerability in its makeRequest servlet component. An unauthenticated, remote attacker could exploit this, by sending a specially crafted HTTP request, to cause the application to generate and send a request of their choosing. Successful exploitation of this vulnerability could allow an attacker access to internal network resources. Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to Atlassian JIRA version 8.7.0 or later.
