~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  
  
Overview:  
  
In-App & Desktop Notification for Jira is a Plug-in that displays email notification  
from Jira directly within the application.  
  
The manufacturer describes the product as follows (see [1]):  
  
"In-app & Desktop Notifications for Jira app allows you to get all of Jira's  
email notifications in front of you. Now you won't have to search through all  
your emails to check for a specific event in Jira, but all what you need to do  
is to check the notification section in Jira and see all events that happened  
in Jira and are related to you.  
You will also receive instant Desktop notifications as well as you will be able  
to add comments to the tickets directly from the notification."  
  
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  
  
Vulnerability Details:  
  
With a Jira user name, the corresponding notifications can be read without authentication/authorization.  
This notification is then no longer displayed to the normal user.  
  
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  
  
Proof of Concept (PoC):  
  
Using the following path it is possible to see notifications for a specific user:  
/plugins/servlet/nfj/PushNotification?username=<userName>  
  
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  
  
Solution:  
  
Before delivering a reply, it should be checked whether a  
request has the necessary authorization.
