Is Bamboo vulnerable to CVE-2018-11776 (Apache Struts)

Richard Cross August 29, 2018

Bamboo appears to use a custom version of the struts2-core-2.5.13 jar.  Is Bamboo therefore vulnerable to the above CVE?

Additionally, on what timescale can we expect a new release of Bamboo that uses the latest fixed version of Struts (2.5.17)?

Hi @Richard Cross


in another post, Atlassian replied the following:



Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

We understand your concern regarding the new CVE-2018-11776 vulnerability announced On August 22, by the Apache Software Foundation

Our security team has investigated the case and we confirm that no Atlassian products are affected by this vulnerability, including Crowd 3.2 and all other Crowd versions that did not reach EOL.

However, as an extra precaution that is in-line with industry best practices we will be releasing new versions of Crowd 3.2.x and 3.1.x with updated version of Struts.


Let me know if this helps,
