Atlassian Confluence 6.0.x < 6.0.7 Drafts diff REST Information Disclosure
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 99986
SynopsisA web application running on the remote host is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the Atlassian Confluence application running on the remote host is 6.0.x prior to 6.0.7. It is, therefore, affected by an information disclosure vulnerability in the Confluence drafts diff REST resource due to making available the page IDs or draft IDs without requiring authentication. A remote attacker with access to the Confluence web interface can exploit this, by enumerating the IDs, to disclose the potentially sensitive contents of all blogs and pages in Confluence.
Furthermore, if anonymous access has been enabled, a valid user account is not required to exploit this vulnerability.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to Atlassian Confluence version 6.0.7 or later, or apply the appropriate vendor patch.
