DESCRIPTION

 

A vulnerability in Macromedia Coldfusion MX Server’s default installation can result in the inadvertent disclosure of the physical path of the server installation. A malicious user can connect to the vulnerable host on port 8500 (e.g., http://localhost:8500/CFIDE/probe.cfm) and issue an invalid request. The software returns an error message that displays the physical path:

Error occurred in:
