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


Synopsis :

A web-based application running on the remote host is affected
by a reflected cross-site scripting vulnerability.

Description :

The version of Adobe ColdFusion running on the remote Windows host is
missing a security hotfix. It is, therefore, affected by a reflected
cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability due to a failure to properly
sanitize user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker,
using a crafted request, can exploit this to execute arbitrary script
code in the user's browser session.
