Atlassian JIRA 4.2.x < 5.1.1 Multiple XSS

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 85221


The remote web server hosts a web application that is potentially affected by multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities.


According to its self-reported version number, the version of Atlassian JIRA hosted on the remote web server is 4.2.x prior to 5.1.1. It is, therefore, potentially affected by multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities that allow a remote attacker to embed arbitrary JavaScript code in a JIRA page.

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


Upgrade to Atlassian JIRA 5.1.1 or later.
