You'll need to take that up with your hosting provider or Atlassian.  We're just end users.  Atlassian are here, but they don't provide formal support here.

@Shawn, we provide support here for starter licenses. :)

I asked the security team how I could help with your security concern and they advised me to direct you to How to Report a Security Issue.

It would be great if you could follow up here in the Community when you get an answer, in case someone else has the same issue. 

Hi Ann, thanks for your suggestion. I have filed a security Issue here: https://securitysd.atlassian.net/servicedesk/customer/portal/2/SEC-1650

I tried to report a bug, as I thought that would be the quickest resolution, but I found I did not have permissions to submit a bug. So the link fir reporting a Security issue was where I needed to go.

I will report back here on its success. Most likely it is not an actual vulnerability, but as it is a common security inspection tool flagging a vulnerability, we have to follow up. Thanks for your help,
