Running Atlassian confluence as your corporate Wiki? then you need to block external (internet) access to Confluence immediately. The Atlassian confluence vulnerability is being actively exploited already by state based actors today so take action immediately.

Volexity team found the flaw last weekend when they found suspicious activity on servers running Atlassian Confluence Server software. The team conducted the investigation after discovering JSP webshells on the server disk, which was a copy of the JSP variant of the China Chopper webshell. Later they were able to determine the server compromise stemmed from an attacker launching an exploit to achieve remote code execution.
