low Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9736
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 Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF/XSRF) attack vectors.

Description

The version of JIRA installed on the remote host is earlier than 6.4.10 and is affected by a flaw as HTTP requests to '/EditCustomFieldOptions!default.jspa' do not require multiple steps, explicit confirmation, or a unique token when performing certain sensitive actions. By tricking a user into following a specially crafted link, a context-dependent attacker can perform a CSRF/XSRF attack causing the victim to add new custom fields.
- A flaw exists in the issue collector in the REST API as HTTP requests do not require multiple steps, explicit confirmation, or a unique token when performing certain sensitive actions. By tricking a user into following a specially crafted link, a context-dependent attacker can perform a CSRF/XSRF attack causing the victim to perform unspecified actions.

Solution

Update to JIRA 6.4.x version 6.4.10 or later.
