Adobe ColdFusion Multiple Vulnerabilities (APSB16-16) (credentialed check)

This script is Copyright (C) 2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

A web-based application running on the remote Windows host is affected
by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Adobe ColdFusion running on the remote Windows host is
missing a security hotfix. It is, therefore, affected by multiple
vulnerabilities :

- A cross-site scripting vulnerability exists due to
improper validation of user-supplied input. An attacker
can exploit this to execute arbitrary script code in a
user's browser session. (CVE-2016-1113)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the
Apache Commons Collections (ACC) library that is
triggered during the deserialization of Java Objects. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to
execute arbitrary code on the target host.

- A flaw exists related to certificate validation due to
the server hostname not being verified to match a domain
name in the Subject's Common Name (CN) or SubjectAltName
field when handling wild card certificates. A
man-in-the-middle attacker can exploit this by spoofing
the TLS/SSL server via a certificate that appears valid,
resulting the disclosure or manipulation of transmitted
data. (CVE-2016-1115)
