Adobe ColdFusion < 2021.x < 2021u12 / 2023.x < 2023u6 Multiple Vulnerabilities (APSB23-52)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 185766


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


The version of Adobe ColdFusion installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 2021.x update 12 or 2023.x update 6. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the APSB23-52 advisory.

- Deserialization of Untrusted Data (CWE-502) potentially leading to Arbitrary code execution (CVE-2023-44350, CVE-2023-44351, CVE-2023-44353)

- Improper Access Control (CWE-284) potentially leading to Security feature bypass (CVE-2023-26347)

- Cross-site Scripting (Reflected XSS) (CWE-79) potentially leading to Arbitrary code execution (CVE-2023-44352)

- Improper Input Validation (CWE-20) potentially leading to Arbitrary code execution (CVE-2023-44355)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Update to Adobe ColdFusion version 2021 update 12 / 2023 update 6 or later.
