Atlassian Bamboo 2.2.x < 5.8.5 / 5.9.x < 5.9.7 Unspecified Resource Deserialization RCE

high Nessus Plugin ID 86721


The remote web application is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Atlassian Bamboo running on the remote host is version 2.2.x prior to 5.8.5 or 5.9.x prior to 5.9.7. It is, therefore, affected by an unspecified resource deserialization flaw due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary Java code. Note that the attacker must be able to access the Bamboo web interface.

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 Bamboo version 5.8.5 / 5.9.7 or later.
