Atlassian JIRA 7.2.x < 7.2.6 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9920


The remote web server hosts an application that is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.


The version of JIRA installed on the remote host is earlier than 7.2.6 and is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists that is triggered when repeatedly accessing a specific error page resource. This may allow a remote attacker to consume excessive memory and exhaust the available heap space. (OSVDB 150037)
- A flaw exists that allows a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack. This flaw exists because the program does not validate input when deleting a crafted webhook before returning it to users. This may allow a user-assisted authenticated attacker to create a specially crafted request that would execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session within the trust relationship between their browser and the server. (OSVDB 150038)
- A flaw exists in the 'ApplicationLinkRequestFactoryFactoryImpl.createRequest' function that is triggered when handling URIs. With a specially crafted URIs string, a context-dependent attacker can disclose potentially sensitive information. (OSVDB 150039)


Update to JIRA version 7.2.6 or later.
