Atlassian JIRA 6.1.x < 6.1.5 Mutliple CSRF / XSRF

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9733


The remote web server hosts an application that is vulnerable to multiple Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF/XSRF) attack vectors.


The version of JIRA installed on the remote host is earlier than 6.1.5 and is affected by multiple CSRF/XSRF vulnerabilities :

Multiple flaws exist as HTTP requests to the following components do not require multiple steps, explicit confirmation, or a unique token when performing certain sensitive actions :

- 'Undo' method of ''
- 'updateUserAvatar' method of ''
- 'setCurrent' method of ''
- 'getRenderedContent' method of ''
- 'validateProject' method of ''
- 'updateUserAvatar', 'createAvatarFromTermporary', 'storeTemporaryAvatar', and 'storeTemporaryAvatarUsingMultiPart' methods of ''
- 'storeTemporaryAvatar' and 'storeTemporaryAvatarUsingMultiPart' methods of ''
- 'validate' and 'testHandler' methods of ''
- 'addVoter' and 'addWatcher' methods of ''
- 'watchIssue' and 'voteIssue' methods of ''

By tricking a user into following a specially crafted link, a context-dependent attacker can perform a CSRF/XSRF attack causing the victim to manipulate settings.


Update to JIRA 6.1.x version 6.1.5 or later.
