Adobe ColdFusion Remote Code Execution (CVE-2023-26360)

Application Details

Adobe ColdFusion is a rapid web application development platform used to create and manage web pages.


Adobe ColdFusion could allow Improper Access Control that could result in arbitrary code execution on the system.


By inserting arbitrary CFML (ColdFusion Markup Language) tags into an existing file, and then translating this file, the attacker can achieve arbitrary remote code execution.

POST /testing.cfc?method=foo&_cfclient=true

PAYLOAD - _variables={<cfexecute name='c:\windows\notepad.exe'></cfexecute>

By turning this into a traffic file and matching rule, we are able to detect attempts to execute arbitrary code on the system.


Idappcom have created signature 8024449 along with a traffic file for this vulnerability.
