Description

Unprotected access is allowed to the scripts under the ColdFusion /CFIDE/ directory. These utility scripts can expose information about the server and its configuration. Because of the history of vulnerabilities due to scripts within the /CFIDE/ directory, ColdFusion hardening best practices recommend that access to most (if not all) of the subdirectories under /CFIDE/ be protected with a password or completely disabled
