Atlassian Confluence 6.14.x < 7.4.6 Arbitrary File Read

medium Web Application Scanning Plugin ID 112861
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.


Atlassian Confluence 6.14.x < 7.4.6 Arbitrary File Read


According to its self-reported version number, the Atlassian Confluence application running on the remote host is prior to 6.13.18, 6.14.x < 7.4.6 or 7.5.x < 7.8.3. It is, therefore, affected by an incorrect path access check vulnerability allowing unauthenticated remote attackers to read arbitrary files within WEB-INF and META-INF directories.

Note that the scanner has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to Atlassian Confluence version 7.4.6 or later.
