Update to June ColdFusion Security Hot-fix

22 July 2011

I'm not sure this has been widely publicised, but Shilpi from the Adobe ColdFusion team mentioned that an update to the ColdFusion HotFix issued in June was posted on 20 July.

The update addresses various issues people encountered with the HotFix, and the good news is that you won't have to re-apply the whole patch. If you are on CF9 it's simply a matter of replacing index.cfm in CFIDE/administrator/datasources - which fixes the problem of not being able to verify all datasource connections.

For those who haven't applied the fix yet, the package has been updated so there are no additional steps.
