critical Nessus Plugin ID 99669


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 10.x prior to update 23, 11.x prior to update 12, 2016.x prior to update 4. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- 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.

- A Java deserialization flaw exists in the Apache BlazeDS library that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-3066)


Upgrade to Adobe ColdFusion version 10 update 23 / 11 update 12 / 2016 update 4 or later.
