Description

According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Atlassian Jira hosted on the remote web server is 7.13.x prior to 8.3.0. It is, therefore, affected by a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the project configuration feature due to improper validation of user-supplied input before returning it to users. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to click a specially crafted URL, to execute arbitrary script code in a user
