Is the CVE-2020-14179 issue still present?


We are using version 8.20.1 as jira server. However, we received a vulnerability notice today. CVE-2020-14179 we've done the readings for the issue here. I couldn't find such an open number on the Jira security page.


In the aforementioned solution request, there is information that it has not been resolved. In the last comment someone mentioned that it was fixed. However, atlassian has not confirmed this.

On the community page, someone stated that the problem was not resolved on April 16, 2021, it was not working.


It's been a quirky process.

In the last case, can anyone who has knowledge about this issue inform us?
Is version 8.20.1 valid for this threat or not?

Based on what I'm reading, Atlassian "solved" the issue by creating the dark features.  On your version, you should incorporate one of the two fixes:

Hello, @serkan_sezer , I see that we've delivered a fix for this CVE for a while now and we have no confirmation of sensitive information being disclosed through that vector.

One thing that I've see more than a couple times in the past weeks is when clients upgrade their Jira Software but their Jira Server Management is still not updated causing the Vulnerability check to trigger an alert.

If your team was able to reproduce any vulnerability, they can follow the Vulnerability Information steps
