Adobe patches flaws in ColdFusion, LiveCycle Data Services and Premiere Clip

The flaws could enable cross-site scripting and request-forgery attacks

Adobe has released security updates for its ColdFusion application server, LiveCycle Data Services framework and Premiere Clip iOS app.

The company published hotfixes for ColdFusion versions 11 and 10, namely ColdFusion 11 Update 7 and ColdFusion 10 Update 18. Both updates address two input validation issues that could be exploited to execute cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.

In addition, the hotfixes include an updated version of BlazeDS, a Java messaging protocol for rich Internet applications, that resolves an important server-side request- forgery vulnerability.

ColdFusion installations are often targeted by attackers. In 2013 researchers documented an attack where hackers exploited a ColdFusion vulnerability to install malware on Microsoft IIS servers.

That same year, a server hosting firm called Linode was compromised through a ColdFusion flaw and Adobe issued two advisories about vulnerabilities in the Web application server that were being exploited by attackers.

The server-side request forgery vulnerability in BlazeDS was also patched in LiveCycle Data Services, which includes the messaging technology. The updated versions of LiveCycleDS are 4.7.0.354178, 4.6.2.354178, 4.5.1.354177, 3.1.0.354180 and 3.0.0.354175.

Finally, an input validation vulnerability was fixed in Adobe Premiere Clip, an iOS app for editing videos. The patched version is 1.2.1.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
