This is not an official answer (I'm not Atlassian staff), but based on a quick glance at the CVE report and what versions of Tomcat are included in Bitbucket, I think this only affects Stash 3.11.6 or older.

CVE-2017-12615 appears to only affect systems using Tomcat 7.x.

Bitbucket 4.0 or newer uses Tomcat 8.x according to the End of support announcements for Bitbucket Server page.

Probably better asked of Atlassian for an answer than the Community.  Https:// will get you an official answer (we'd ask you to share it here, for info)

Good suggestion. I will report back

Hello @Chris Becker,

@G. Sylvie Davies [] is right. As mentioned to you in the support ticket you have created, the security team has reviewed the vulnerability and has determined that the vulnerability CVE-2017-12615 affects Tomcat 7.0.0 to 7.0.79, and was fixed in revisions 1804604 and 1804729.

According to the announcement from 10 September 2014 at the End of support announcements for Bitbucket Server page, Atlassian would be including Tomcat 8 libraries from Bitbucket Server 4.0 onwards, so all Bitbucket Server versions before 4.0 are likely affected by this vulnerability and all versions from 4.0 onwards are not.



Please let me know if you need any further clarifications.
