Adobe ColdFusion 11.x < 11u13 / 2016.x < 2016u5 Multiple Vulnerabilities (APSB17-30)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 103194


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


The version of Adobe ColdFusion running on the remote Windows host is 11.x prior to update 13 or 2016.x prior to update 5. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A Java deserialization flaw exists that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-11283, CVE-2017-11284)

- A reflected cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability exists due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted request, to execute arbitrary script code in user's browser session.

- An unspecified flaw due to improper restriction of XML External Entity Reference. (CVE-2017-11286)


Upgrade to Adobe ColdFusion version 11 update 13 / 2016 update 5 or later.
