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 is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 3


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


According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Atlassian Jira hosted on the remote web server is version 7.6.x prior to 8.5.4 or 8.6.x prior to 8.7.1. It is, therefore, affected by a stored cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the REST API component. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue via the file upload feature to inject arbitrary HTML or JavaScript code in a user's browser session.

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 8.5.4, 8.7.1, 8.8.0 or later.
