Atlassian Confluence Server 5.7.x < 5.7.6 Remote Disclosure

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9644


The remote Confluence server is affected by a remote disclosure vulnerability.


Versions of Confluence 5.7.x prior to 5.7.6 contain an insecure direct object reference flaw in the '/viewdefaultdecorator.action' script that is triggered when it does not properly restrict requests for files passed via the 'decoratorName' parameter. This may allow an authenticated remote attacker to gain access to read configuration files.


Upgrade to Confluence 5.7.x version 5.7.6 or later.
