Security Vulnerability CVE-2021-42574 Mitigation

Mayuresh Sakharape November 22, 2021

Hello everyone,

How you guys are mitigating Security Vulnerability CVE-2021-42574? I am still unable to understand the risk, impact and mitigation done by Atlassian. Is there any other workaround than upgrade?

Kind Regards,

Here is a nice blog post about it:

The main takeaway for me was that Jira or Confluence are not directly at risk, but they can be used to trick someone else to copy code from jira/confluence into another system and then when that system is built/executed, then that system may contain bad code that the developer didn't realize they copied.
