Hi @Muhammad_Nafees and welcome to the community!

The official announcement states that Confluence cloud is NOT affected by this vulnerability. So you don't have to do anything.

Atlassian Cloud sites are protected

If your Confluence site is accessed via an domain, it is hosted by Atlassian and is not vulnerable. Our investigations have not found any evidence of exploitation of Atlassian Cloud.


Hope that helps!

thanks @Alex Koxaras for your quick response :)

No worries!
Kindly mark my answer as accepted, to help others.


Hi @Alex Koxaras My org is on server version. Our Atalssian products are on a VPN, and authentication is required to reach the product. I did not see any mention of VPN hosted products being excluded from this vulnerability, so my assumption is that we are at risk. I just want to confirm that my statement is accurate. If VPN authentication is required to access our product, and none of our stack is front facing or exposed to the internet, would our system still be considered to be in a “critical” state?

Hi @Shawn McAtee ,

Unfortunately I am not eligible to answer this question with an official answer. I'm not part of the Atlassian team, but I am working with a solution partner. With our customers we left no exception. We notified everyone, those whose instance was exposed, but also behind a firewall or a vpn. If you were a client of mine, I would suggest that you also take actions against this. Keep in mind that Atlassian stated that most likely by the end of the day (PDT) they will have provide a fix.
