Jira stopped rendering pages, only header appears

We have a jira installation on our system. This morning it stopped rendering the login page as it did. The only thing that is visible is this UI:

login.jpgIf we click the login button, we get this:

login2.JPGBut when insisting on clicking the log in button, no action happens. 

We get these errors on catalina.out when refreshing the page, but I am not sure how to interpret them and if they are even related to when we can see:

Hi,

is this a service desk reachable from the internet? The Jira version look a little old. If yes, you might have run into some security issues.

I would contact Atlassian support...

Hi JP,

thank you for your hint. I've in fact updated our current Service Desk but the issue remained.

The root cause for this was an "Announcement Banner" that had malformed HTML in it. I had to delete it in the database, as I had no UI to do it.

 

The malformation was a comment block that was missing a dash closing the block (was <!-- -> and should be <!-- --> )

The stack trace I've published is unrelated.
