Government and cyber authorities have revealed that a critical vulnerability has been identified in Atlassian Confluence Data Center and Server. The vulnerability, known as CVE-2023-22515, scored 9.8 out of 10 on the Common Vulnerability Scoring System, was exploited by a Chinese-backed threat group known as Storm-0062, associated with the Chinese Ministry of State Security, prior to the discovery of the vulnerability or the creation of a security patch. The FBI, CISA, and MS-ISAC have issued a joint advisory urging network administrators to apply security updates and follow incident response recommendations.
