Cold Fusion Administration Page Overflow

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Searches for the existence of /cfide/administrator/index.cfm

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
A denial of service vulnerability exists within the Allaire
ColdFusion web application server (version 4.5.1 and earlier) which permits an
attacker to overwhelm the web server and deny legitimate web page requests.

By downloading and altering the login HTML form a possible hacker can send overly
large passwords (>40,0000 chars) to the server, causing it to stop responding.

Solution: Use HTTP basic authentication to restrict access to this page or
remove it entirely if remote administration is not a requirement.
A patch should be available from allaire - www.allaire.com..
