New Macromedia Security Zone Bulletin Posted
From: Macromedia Security Zone (securityzonemacromedia.com)
Date: Wed Dec 10 2003 - 13:37:36 CST
Several security issues that may affect ColdFusion customers
have come to our attention recently.
To learn about these new issues and what actions you can take
to address them, please visit the Macromedia Security Zone:
MPSB03-07 - Security Patch available for ColdFusion MX and
JRun 4.0 Web Services DoS
Originally Posted: December 9, 2003
ColdFusion MX and JRun 4 Web Services may be vulnerable to a
Denial-of-Service attack because they use the default Apache
Crimson XML parser to process Web Service SOAP requests.
ColdFusion Version 5 and earlier versions do not support Web
Services and are not vulnerable.
NOTE: This fix is NOT required if ColdFusion MX or JRun 4.0
is used only to consume Web Services provided by others.
WHAT CUSTOMERS SHOULD DO:
Customers with configurations affected by this bulletin
should follow the recommendations found in the bulletin.
