Medium Web Application Scanning Plugin ID 98743


Atlassian JIRA Service Desk 3.10.x < 3.16.8 Path Traversal Vulnerability


According to its self-reported version number, the Atlassian JIRA Service Desk application running on the remote host is prior to 3.9.16, 3.10.x prior to 3.16.8, 4.0.x prior to 4.1.3, 4.2.x prior to 4.2.5, 4.3.x prior to 4.3.4 or 4.4.x prior to 4.4.1. It is, therefore, affected by a path traversal vulnerability. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to view all issues from all the projects in the affected instance.

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 JIRA Service Desk version 3.16.8 or later.
