I am under attack by CVE-2023-22518, symptoms:
1. The database is cleared
2. Data directories and files exist but are not backed up
Can I still recover my data? No backup
Experiencing an attack involving data clearing due to CVE-2023-22518 can be extremely challenging, especially without a backup. However, there might still be some possibilities for data recovery:
Database Recovery Options:
Check if any database backups exist separately from the Confluence system. If there are backups, they might contain the data that was cleared.
Investigate recovery options within the database system itself. Sometimes, deleted data can be recoverable using specialized recovery tools or techniques. However, this process can be complex and might require expertise.
File System Analysis:
Even though the data directories and files exist but are not backed up, it's possible that some data remnants might still be present on the file system. Forensic analysis or specialized recovery tools might potentially retrieve some of the lost data.
Confluence XML Backup:
If there's a possibility that Confluence's XML backup feature was enabled before the attack, there might be a chance to recover some content. However, this depends on the timing and existence of such backups.
Remember, without backups, data recovery can be exceedingly challenging. It's crucial to have robust backup and disaster recovery strategies in place to mitigate the impact of such incidents in the future.
