Hi all

There is no vulnerability in Atlassian server products, see my blog post.

Thanks Craig for confirmation! Good to hear from Atlassin people directly :)

I think you just need to patch up your linux to fix the vulnerability. Any software can be exposed with this bash issue. They put out a temporary patch you should update to that and when a complete fix has been done update to that.

Atlassian systems, both OnDemand and Server versions, are not affected by this bug generally, barring two cases:

  1.  Bitbucket was vulnerable, but has been patched
  2. Where you have installed server versions on systems that are affected.  Atlassian stuff itself is not affected directly, but if they're running on an OS that is affected, then yes, they're vulnerable.  So you need to fix it at an OS level if you're using a vulnerable version of bash.

 

Thanks Nic, That make sense since Bash is part of OS component.

for the cloud issue I have not heard atlassian mention anything yet.  nothing listed in their https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Security+Advisories
