On June 2nd, 2022, Atlassian disclosed a critical vulnerability impacting the Confluence collaboration tool, tracked as CVE-2022-26134; active exploitation of the vulnerability has been confirmed. CVE-2022-26134 is an unauthenticated Remote Code Execution (RCE) vulnerability that impacts all supported versions of Confluence Server and Data Center. Exploitation of this vulnerability would allow an unauthenticated and remote actor to execute code on vulnerable devices, potentially leading to the deployment of malware or the exfiltration of sensitive data.

At this time, security patches to address CVE-2022-26134 are not available. Atlassian has stated that patches will be released by end-of-day June 3rd, 2022. The current recommendations for organizations employing Confluence Server or Data Center are to restrict access from the internet or disable the instances; it should be noted that both recommendations may cause disruptions to standard business procedures.
