How to deal with CVE-2021-26084



we have bought a license for Confluence server, but since Atlassian ended the development of this product, we do not pay the maintenance anymore.

Recently, it has come to our knowledge that there is a critical security bug in your product, addressable as CVE-2021-26084, which could cause severe damage to our company.

It is not possible for us to upgrade to newer version not we want or can migrate to cloud due to our internal security protocols. 

We need an official statement how to deal with this problem, as soon as possible. We believe that security issues like this must be possible to fix even without paid maintenance, since without it your product cannot be used anymore. 

Thank you,

Kind Regards,

Petr Vokoun

Hi @petrvokoun ,

here an official statement provided by Atlassian

If you can't upgrade your current Confluence , you can mitigate that issue through the workaround provided by Atlassian in that article.

Hope this helps,


Hi Fabio,

we will try it asap. Thanks a lot!
