Security update for ColdFusion versions 9, 8.0.1, and 8 and a word of caution

A new security update for ColdFusion versions 9, 8.0.1, and 8 is available now. Important vulnerabilities have been identified for these versions that could lead to cross-site scripting and information disclosure. So an update is highly recommended.

But after taking updates it was reported that the update killed the datasources in the CF admin. After deleting shf8010001.jar from {CF_HOME}/lib/updates/ and restarting the ColdFusion service CF is up and running again. We are still waiting for Adobe to resolve this issue.

    The updater worked fine here. All datasources are verifying normally.
