HackMyCF.com Now Detects BlazeDS Vulnerability
I've just finished updating the HackMyCF.com ColdFusion security scanner to detect the BlaseDS Vulnerability APSB10-05 announced in February 2010. As you hopefully know, this vulnerability also effects ColdFusion 7-9, because it has BlaseDS installed by default. So make sure and patch your servers, this vulnerability allows an attacker to read any file on your server that ColdFusion has permission to read, which can make it very easy for an attacker to break in in many cases.
Head over to HackmyCF.com and see if we are detecting the vulnerability on your server (note that even if we are not detecting it, you should still make sure you have applied this important patch).
Big thanks to Joshua Cyr for providing me with some helpful information about this vulnerability.
