Vulnerability Note VU#295276

Adobe ColdFusion is vulnerable to cross-site scripting via the logviewer directory

Original Release date: 18 Nov 2013 | Last revised: 22 Nov 2013


Adobe ColdFusion 10 update 11 and possibly earlier versions contain a reflected cross-site scripting (XSS) (CWE-79) vulnerability.


CWE-79: Improper Neutralization of Input During Web Page Generation ('Cross-site Scripting')

Adobe ColdFusion 10 update 11 and possibly earlier versions contains a reflected cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability. An attacker can inject arbitrary HTML content (including script) within the /logviewer/ directory.

The vulnerability requires using a relative path, although there is no directory traversal vulnerability.


A remote unauthenticated attacker can conduct a cross-site scripting attack, which may be used to result in information leakage, privilege escalation, and/or denial of service.


Adobe has posted an advisory which advises users to apply the appropriate hotfix to their version of ColdFusion to address these vulnerabilities.
