Adobe patches flaws in ColdFusion, LiveCycle Data Services and Premiere Clip

The flaws could enable cross-site scripting and request-forgery attacks

Adobe has released security updates for its ColdFusion application server, LiveCycle Data Services framework and Premiere Clip iOS app.

The company published hotfixes for ColdFusion versions 11 and 10, namely ColdFusion 11 Update 7 and ColdFusion 10 Update 18. Both updates address two input validation issues that could be exploited to execute cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.

In addition, the hotfixes include an updated version of BlazeDS, a Java messaging protocol for rich Internet applications, that resolves an important server-side request- forgery vulnerability.

ColdFusion installations are often targeted by attackers. In 2013 researchers documented an attack where hackers exploited a ColdFusion vulnerability to install malware on Microsoft IIS servers.

That same year, a server hosting firm called Linode was compromised through a ColdFusion flaw and Adobe issued two advisories about vulnerabilities in the Web application server that were being exploited by attackers.

The server-side request forgery vulnerability in BlazeDS was also patched in LiveCycle Data Services, which includes the messaging technology. The updated versions of LiveCycleDS are 4.7.0.354178, 4.6.2.354178, 4.5.1.354177, 3.1.0.354180 and 3.0.0.354175.

Finally, an input validation vulnerability was fixed in Adobe Premiere Clip, an iOS app for editing videos. The patched version is 1.2.1.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
