Hi jy,

I didn't find a reference to this fix in the release notes:

I was also looking for a reference in the Atlasian Jira project that tracks fixes but didn't find CVE-2021-2388 :

I tried to create a issue on this , but I  can't create as I do not have the permissions to.

If possible, can someone help to create a issue on this?


I installed the latest version 8.19.1, and check it is using AdoptOpenJDK11.0.11 , which is still affected by the CVE.

Hi everyone, thank you for reporting this. 

I have raised the bug here :

Like Carlos Garcia Navarro likes this

I like to ask on the workaround,

Install/download the version of Java required by JIRA (see Supported Platforms); - Install OpenJDK 11 RHEL rpm , is that OK?
Stop JIRA;
Set the path where you installed Java as the JAVA_HOME (JDK) or JRE_HOME (JRE) variables for JIRA (see instructions below);

Note: If JRE_HOME is not defined, Jira will define its value using the JAVA_HOME value


Go to the location where you installed JIRA, then to the bin folder;
Edit the file and add the line at the initial lines:

Set PATH  to include the <Java>/bin folder

After that the bin installer, should use the rpm OpenJDK instead of the bin installer AdoptOpenJDK?

i am using the bin installer and  I tried to change the JAVA_HOME last time but didnt work.


This was the last error faced:

line 31:

if [ $java_version -ne 8]  && [ $java_version -ne 11]


I am using:

OpenJDK Runtime Environment 18.9 (build 11.0.12+7-LTS)

OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM 18.9 (build 11.0.12+7-LTS, mixed mode, sharing)

I have updated to 8.21.1 and it's still using OpenJDK 11.0.11. In this link,

it mentions that it was fixed in 8.20.4?

Any plans to fix this?

will like to check if  there is going to be fixed:

OpenJDK installed version: 11.0.11
