Adobe ColdFusion <= 8.0.1 Multiple XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

An application installed on the remote web server has multiple
cross-site scripting vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of ColdFusion installed on the remote host is vulnerable to
a cross-site scripting attack. '_logintowizard.cfm' and 'index.cfm'
do not sanitize the query string of the URL, which could result in
the injection of HTML or script code. A remote attacker could
exploit this by tricking a user into requesting a malicious URL.

This version of ColdFusion has other cross-site scripting
vulnerabilities, though Nessus has not checked for those issues.
