Patch available for ColdFusion MX 7 information disclosure issue

Release date: January 9, 2007

Vulnerability identifier: APSB07-02

CVE number: CVE-2006-5858

Platform: Windows, IIS only

Affected software versions

	ColdFusion MX 7, ColdFusion MX 7.0.1, and ColdFusion MX 7.0.2

Summary:

	A potential vulnerability in ColdFusion URL parsing could allow an
	attacker to access directory listings in the ColdFusion installation
	directory. A specially crafted command sent to the ColdFusion server
	could result in the attacker getting access to the directory listings.

Solution:

	Adobe recommends ColdFusion users apply the following update using
	the installation instructions below. Before following the instructions,
	update to ColdFusion MX 7.0.1, if currently running ColdFusion MX 7.0.

	NOTE: Back up existing files before making changes. As always, test
	the changes in a non-production environment before applying the changes
	to production servers.

	Installation instructions

	ColdFusion MX 7.01 and 7.02 server

	   1. Backup the existing {cfmx_root}runtime\lib\wsconfig.jar to 
	      wsconfig.jar.bu.
	   2. Download the hot fix (wsconfig-U5-65311.jar - 2.4 MB).
	   3. Rename to wsconfig.jar
	   4. Stop all ColdFusion MX servers and IIS (WWW Publishing Services)
	      and the Windows Management Instrumentation service to unlock the
	      IIS connector.
	      Note: This step is important for ISPs. With IIS running, the
	      connector installer shuts down and restarts each site during
	      the upgrade, causing the upgrade to take much longer.
	   5. Navigate to the {cfmx_root}\runtime\lib directory and run the
	      connector upgrade:
	        cd {cfmx_root}\runtime\lib
	        java -Dtrace.ci=1 -jar wsconfig.jar -upgrade -v
	   6. Make sure the upgrade completed successfully.
	      * Inspect {cfmx_root}\runtime\lib\wsconfig\wsconfig.log for errors
	      * Check the version tab of 
	        {jrun_root}\lib\wsconfig\(number)\jrun_iis6_wildcard.dll. 
	        The "Product Version" item name field should indicate 
	        4,0,6,10840
	      Another way to check the version is to query the wsconfig.jar
	      directly as follows:
	        java -jar wsconfig.jar -info

	ColdFusion MX 7.01 and 7.02 multi-server with JRun 4 Updater 5

	   NOTE: New installations of 7.01 and 7.02 run under Updater 5 
	   as installed.
	   1. Backup the existing {jrun_root}\lib\wsconfig.jar to wsconfig.jar.bu.
	   2. Download the hot fix (wsconfig-U5-65311.jar - 2.4 MB).
	   3. Rename to wsconfig.jar
	   4. Stop all ColdFusion MX servers, JRun servers and IIS (WWW
	      Publishing Services).  Also stop the Windows Management
	      Instrumentation service to unlock the IIS connector.
	      Note: This step is important for ISPs. With IIS running, the
	      connector installer shuts down and restarts each site during
	      the upgrade, causing the upgrade to take much longer.
	   5. Navigate to the /jrun4/lib directory and run the connector upgrade:
	        cd {jrun_root}/lib
	        java -Dtrace.ci=1 -jar wsconfig.jar -upgrade -v
	   6. Make sure the upgrade completed successfully.
	      * Inspect {jrun_root}\lib\wsconfig\wsconfig.log for errors
	      * Check the version tab of 
	        {jrun_root}\lib\wsconfig\(number)\jrun_iis6_wildcard.dll. 
	        The "Product Version" item name field should indicate 
	        4,0,6,108409
	      Another way to check the version is to query the wsconfig.jar 
	      directly as follows:
	        java -jar wsconfig.jar -info
	      The command should return, "Macromedia JRun 4.0 (Build 108409)".

	ColdFusion MX 7.01 and 7.02 multi-server with JRun 4 Updater 6

	   NOTE: New installations of 7.01 and 7.02 run under Updater 5 as
	   installed.  A manual upgrade to Updater 6 would have been needed
	   to upgrade to updater 6.
	   1. Backup the existing {jrun_root}\lib\wsconfig.jar to wsconfig.jar.bu.
	   2. Download the hot fix (wsconfig-U6-65311.jar - 2.5 MB).
	   3. Rename to wsconfig.jar
	   4. Stop all ColdFusion MX servers, JRun servers and IIS (WWW
	      Publishing Services).  Also stop the Windows Management
	      Instrumentation service to unlock the IIS connector.
	      Note: This step is important for ISPs. With IIS running, the
	      connector installer shuts down and restarts each site during
	      the upgrade, causing the upgrade to take much longer.
	   5. Navigate to the \jrun4\lib directory and run the connector upgrade:
	        cd {jrun_root}\lib
	        java -Dtrace.ci=1 -jar wsconfig.jar -upgrade -v
	   6. Make sure the upgrade completed successfully.
	      * Inspect {jrun_root}\lib\wsconfig\wsconfig.log for errors
	      * Check the version tab of 
	        {jrun_root}\lib\wsconfig\(number)\jrun_iis6_wildcard.dll. 
	        The "Product Version" item name field should indicate 
	        4,0,6,108407
	      Another way to check the version is to query the wsconfig.jar 
	      directly as follows:
	        java -jar wsconfig.jar -info
	      The command should return, "Macromedia JRun 4.0 (Build 108407)".
	   7. Download jrun-hotfix-65311.jar and save in {jrun_root}\servers\lib.
