Security Updates for Adobe ColdFusion and Adobe Flash Player

Number: AV13-041
Date: 13 November 2013

Purpose

The purpose of this advisory is to bring attention to recently released security updates for Adobe ColdFusion and Flash Player products.

Assessment

  1. ColdFusion
    Adobe has released a security hotfix for ColdFusion versions 10, 9.0.2, 9.0.1 and 9.0 for Windows, Macintosh and Linux. This hotfix addresses a reflected cross site scripting vulnerability (CVE-2013-5326) that could be exploited by a remote, authenticated user on ColdFusion 10 and earlier when the CFIDE directory is exposed. This hotfix also addresses a vulnerability (CVE-2013-5328) in ColdFusion 10 that could permit unauthorized remote read access.  
  2. Adobe Flash Player
    Adobe has released security updates for Adobe Flash Player 11.9.900.117 and earlier versions for Windows and Macintosh and Adobe Flash Player 11.2.202.310 and earlier versions for Linux. These updates address vulnerabilities that could cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system.

Suggested action

CCIRC recommends that system administrators test and deploy the vendor-released updates to affected applications accordingly.
