Version Summary:Functional code that demonstrates an exploit of the multiple vulnerabilities in Adobe ColdFusion for Windows, Macintosh, and UNIX is publicly available.
 

Description
 
Adobe ColdFusion for Windows, Macintosh, and UNIX contains multiple vulnerabilities that could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to bypass security restrictions to gain unauthorized access or to access sensitive information.

The vulnerabilities are due to insufficient security restrictions imposed by the affected software on certain user requests. An unauthenticated, remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by sending crafted requests to the targeted system. When processed, the requests could allow the attacker to bypass security restrictions and take control of the affected system, obtain unauthorized access to restricted directories, or gain knowledge of sensitive information on the system.

Reports indicate that these vulnerabilities are being exploited in the wild. The vulnerabilities, CVE-2013-0625 and CVE-2013-0629, affect users who do not have password protection enabled or have no password set on the system.

Functional code that exploits these vulnerabilities is available as part of the Metasploit framework.

Administrators are advised to apply the appropriate updates.

Administrators may consider using IP-based access control lists (ACLs) to allow only trusted systems to access the affected systems.

Adobe has released security bulletins at the following links: APSA13-01 and APSB13-03

Adobe customers are advised to update their installation of ColdFusion using the instructions provided in the technote at the following link: ColdFusion Security Hotfix
