New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote web server hosts an application that is vulnerable to a Remote Code Execution (RCE) vulnerability.

Description

The version of JIRA installed on the remote host is earlier than 7.6.x prior to 7.6.14, 7.13.x prior to 7.13.5, 8.0.x prior to 8.0.3, 8.1.x prior to 8.1.2 or 8.2.x prior to 8.2.3 and is affected by a Remote Code Execution (RCE) vulnerability. This vulnerability could allow a remote malicious user to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by a server-side template injection vulnerability in various resources. If an SMTP server has been configured in Jira and the Contact Administrators Form is enabled or the attacker has "JIRA Administrators" access, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on the system.

Solution

Update to JIRA version 8.2.3 or later. If 8.2.x is not available, 8.1.2, 8.0.3, 7.13.5, and 7.6.14 have also been patched for this vulnerability.
