This update also addresses a high severity vulnerability in ColdFusion that could be exploited to create arbitrary files on the remote system. This issue was addressed by updating the underlying code to avoid the creation of files outside of the web root. Update 14 resolves another high severity vulnerability that could be exploited to bypass the XSS filter. This update also addresses several moderate and low severity issues, including: - An issue where a user’s password was not being masked when it was stored in a field that was later submitted to the server. The issue was addressed by masking passwords before they are sent to the server in the field. - An issue where a user could see an error message when accessing a sub-site if that sub-site was configured to force a login. The issue was addressed by not showing the error message when accessing the sub-site. - An issue where a user could not create a sub-site if that sub-site was configured to require a login. Update 14 also includes a fix for a performance issue experienced when using ColdFusion Builder with a large number of templates in a project.
