I received an email from Atlassian relating to the Command Injection issue in SourceTree and suggesting an upgrade to the most recent version of SourceTree, as I'm sure all users did.
I am hesitant about upgrading in an Enterprise environment to the newest version for a couple reasons I will not get into here. Is there any information on what exactly the risks are if I stay on a pre-2 version? And is there any way of mitigating those risks other than upgrading?
Much appreciate any responses

Can you also tell me if you are using the Windows version, or OSX version of SourceTree?
Upgrading is the preferred path.
Alternatively, you can uncheck the option "Use this version of SourceTree for UIR Association" in the Tools/Options/General Tab and remove the following registry key "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\sourcetree\shell\opencommand" - this disables the handling of the "sourcetree://" protocol.
Please note that we do not test on older versions of SourceTree.
