Adobe ColdFusion <= 8.0.1 _logintowizard.cfm XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

An application installed on the remote web server is affected by a
cross-site scripting vulnerability.

Description :

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

Note that ColdFusion is reportedly affected by additional cross-site
scripting vulnerabilities
however, Nessus has not checked for those
