Critical Security Issue Jira (CVE-2019-11581) forms threat

by Cybersprint News 18 Jul 2019

Atlassian has published a security advisory of a JIRA vulnerability found last week (CVE-2019-11581) that has affected many organisations worldwide.

The problem with this cyber threat is that malicious actors can execute remote commands (RCE).

Atlassian advises to turn off the Contact Administrator's form immediately or to upgrade to a fixed version as soon as possible.

While Jira ships by default with this feature OFF, you can check to make sure it is disabled if you are a Jira administrator.

5 steps to secure:


  1. Choose icon settings > System
  2. Select General Configuration to open the Administration page. 
  3. Click the Edit Settings button
  4. Scroll down to the Contact Administrators Form and select OFF
  5. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the Update button for this setting to take affect.

    We recommend that you review the complete advisory in Jira Server - Template injection in various resources - CVE-2019-11581

Alert on current Digital Risks

By simply using the brand or organisation's name our unique Digital Risk Protection SaaS-platform detects external digital risks at an early stage.

The platform works 24/7 is continuously in search of current online vulnerabilities on many different channels.  We implemented many of the same techniques hackers use when we search for online vulnerabilities and open doors. An important difference being that our platform uses Artificial Intelligence (AI), machine learning, Data Visualisation and Big Data to work faster than hackers and to stay ahead of cyber criminals. This way we can automatically map any online footprint and timely detect cyber threats.

We help secure our customers by timely notifying them through our Digital Risk Protection Platform on incidents like these and others. One of the many benefits of these proactive alerts is that our customers are able to mitigate digital risks faster and thus become more cyber resilient.

Please contact Cybersprint today and request a Quickscan to discover your online footprint and reduce your online attack surface.
