Atlassian Bamboo version 5.9.10 build 5921 RE: security alert - how do I fix?

We (well management did and passed it on to me) have received an email (pasted below) stating that there is a security issue that is critical but the security advisory does not appear to deal with the version we are running (above).  So it looks like we have a downloaded install given that it doesn't seem to have upgraded automatically but I don't see how to upgrade or implement Whitelist as advised as our version doesn't appear to have that option.

I have never overseen an install or upgrade for Bamboo and have only had the Admin role for a couple of weeks so please treat any help as being directed at novice level as I am still finding my feet in some areas.  I need to be aware of any downtime, affect on users etc for any upgrade also so that I can plan it is with minimum disruption

Thank you in advance,

Hi Darren, you would need to upgrade your install/upgrade by downloading a complete new version.

As mentioned on the webpage : "" Binary patches are no longer released.

So you would need to download the latest and upgrade (which is , normally wink , a quick and easy process)

Thanks Mark,

Do you know if there is any cost attached to an upgrade or is it free? 

If you have an active license it's free.
