Stepping up Jira security

We’ve always taken the security of our products seriously. Our vulnerability management program uses an array of approaches for finding and fixing security issues, and we’re now doubling down in this space to make more improvements faster, especially with security attacks becoming more common and sophisticated.

Upgraded components and libraries

We’ve identified the core components and third-party libraries that we want to upgrade to the newest, most secure versions, and are focusing on this effort over the next few releases. In Jira 8.18, we’ve fixed another bunch of vulnerabilities by upgrading different components and libraries or improving Jira’s codebase, and we’re not stopping at that—more fixes are already waiting for a bugfix release or the next Jira version. If you’d like to learn more about some of the most important libraries we’ve upgraded, see Preparing for Jira 8.18.
