What is happening? On Thursday, June 2, Atlassian identified a critical security vulnerability for on-premises Confluence Servers and Confluence Data Centre. In order to protect Waterloo's instance of this service from exploitation, the IST security team has implemented a firewall block.
What is the impact? Access to this service is restricted to on-campus and virtual private network (VPN) connections until further notice. If you are not on-campus, you will need to connect to VPN prior to accessing the on-premises Confluence space.
Note: There is no impact to Confluence Cloud spaces.
