Category:   Application (Web Server/CGI)  >   Macromedia ColdFusion Vendors:   Adobe Systems Incorporated
Adobe ColdFusion Application setEncoding() Bug Permits Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1019590
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1019590
CVE Reference:   CVE-2008-0644   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Mar 11 2008
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): MX 7, 8
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in ColdFusion 8 and ColdFusion MX 7. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

For ColdFusion applications where the 'Application.cfm' or 'Application.cfc' file contains the setEncoding() function, a remote user may be able to bypass the ColdFusion cross-site scripting protection mechanisms. A remote user can cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the ColdFusion software and will run in the security context of that site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

Shigeyoshi Muraoka of IT Frontier Corporation reported this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the ColdFusion software, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.
Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix (ColdFusion 8 Cumulative Hot Fix 3), available at:
