Adobe fixes ColdFusion CFC remoting security bug

If you have ColdFusion 8, with CFCs exposed for remote access, with methods marked 'access="remote"' you probably did not know that this also meant any methods marked 'access="public"' could also be invoked remotely.

The obvious security problems now have a fix in the form of hot fix 71471 and it's associated KB article #40332.

You should apply this as soon as you can if your ColdFusion objects are being used by a Flex client, for instance.


ColdFusion 8.0.1 Updater, 64bit Linux Gotcha

Although the download page for ColdFusion lists several different Linux versions (SLES 9 and 10, for instance) if you end up at the actual support matrix for ColdFusion then only a limited sub set of that list is actually supported for 64-bit native (SLES 10.1 only for instance, not 9, and not any other version of 10).
