New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

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


The remote Windows host is running a version of ColdFusion that is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A reflected cross-site scripting vulnerability exists because ColdFusion does not sanitize user-supplied input. This can be exploited by a remote, authenticated user when the CFIDE directory is exposed.

- ColdFusion 10 is affected by an unspecified vulnerability that allows unauthorized remote read access. (CVE-2013-5328)
