US CISA added an actively exploited vulnerability in Adobe ColdFusion to its Known Exploited Vulnerabilities Catalog.

U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has added a critical vulnerability in Adobe ColdFusion, tracked as CVE-2023-26360 (CVSS score: 8.6), to its Known Exploited Vulnerabilities Catalog.

This week Adobe released security updates for ColdFusion versions 2021 and 2018 to resolve the critical flaw CVE-2023-26360 that was exploited in very limited attacks.

“Adobe is aware that CVE-2023-26360 has been exploited in the wild in very limited attacks targeting Adobe ColdFusion.” reads the advisory published by the company.

The vulnerability is an Improper Access Control that can allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. The vulnerability could also lead to arbitrary file system read and memory leak.

According to Binding Operational Directive (BOD) 22-01: Reducing the Significant Risk of Known Exploited Vulnerabilities, FCEB agencies have to address the identified vulnerabilities by the due date to protect their networks against attacks exploiting the flaws in the catalog.

Experts recommend also private organizations review the Catalog and address the vulnerabilities in their infrastructure.

CISA orders federal agencies to fix this flaw by April 5, 2023.

The US Agency also added the following vulnerabilities to the catalog that must be addressed by April 4, 2023.

  • CVE-2023-23397 – Microsoft Office Outlook Privilege Escalation Vulnerability.
