Description

The version of Adobe ColdFusion running on the remote Windows host is affected by an XML external entity injection (XXE) vulnerability in flex-messaging-core.jar due to an incorrect configuration of the XML parser used in the bundled version of BlazeDS. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted AMF request, to read arbitrary files on the system.
