Adobe ColdFusion contains multiple vulnerabilities that could allow an authenticated, remote attacker to conduct cross-site scripting attacks or gain unauthorized access to files on a vulnerable system.
The cross-site scripting vulnerability is due to improper sanitization of user-supplied input to unspecified components in the CFDIE directory. An authenticated, remote attacker could exploit the vulnerability by convincing a user to follow a malicious link. If successful, the attacker could cause the inclusion of malicious script or HTML code in the user's browser in the security context of the affected site hosted on the ColdFusion server.
The unauthorized access vulnerability is due to an unspecified error. An attacker could exploit the vulnerability to gain unauthorized access to read files on the server.
Adobe has confirmed the vulnerabilities in a security bulletin and released software updates.
