TLS / SSL Report

Common Name: check www.example.com
Certificate Expiration Date:
warn May 20, 2019 (29 days)
Public Key Size:check 2048 (2048 or greater recommended)
Signature Algorithm: check sha256WithRSAEncryption
Certificate TrustStore Validation: check Mozilla NSS 09/2016: ok

check Apple OS X 10.11.6: ok
check Java 7 Update 79: ok
Contains Anchor Certificate: check No
Valid Chain Order: check Yes
Protocol Support: check SSLv2 Disabled
(SSLv2 should be disabled, it has been considered weak for over 10 years and has been disabled in browsers by default since IE7)
warn SSLv3 Enabled
Preferred Cipher Suite: AES128-SHA (128 bit keysize) HTTP 200 OK
(SSLv3 should be disabled, it has been considered weak since October 2014 due to the Poodle Vulnerability. Disabling may cause compatibility issues with IE on Windows XP, and old android clients)
warn TLSv1 Enabled
Preferred Cipher Suite: ECDHE-RSA-AES256-SHA (256 bit keysize) HTTP 200 OK
(TLSv1 may be enabled for existing implementations, however PCI DSS 3.1 April 2015 ยง 2.2.3 states that: SSL and early TLS are not considered strong cryptography and cannot be used as a security control after June 30, 2016 2018 (date changed) . Prior to this date, existing implementations that use SSL and/or early TLS must have a formal Risk Mitigation and Migration Plan in place. Effective immediately, new implementations must not use SSL or early TLS. Disabling TLS 1.0 may cause compatibility issues in Internet Explorer, see TLS Browser Support Chart.)
check TLSv1.1 Enabled
Preferred Cipher Suite: ECDHE-RSA-AES256-SHA (256 bit keysize) HTTP 200 OK
(TLS 1.1 may be considered an early TLS with respect to PCI DSS 3.1 compliance. Talk to your QSA for details.)
check TLSv1.2 Enabled
Preferred Cipher Suite: ECDHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384 (256 bit keysize) HTTP 200 OK
(TLS 1.2 should be enabled)
Compression Supported:check No (Compression should be disabled due to CRIME)
Heartbleed: check Not Vulnerable
Logjam: warn 1024 bit DH Group Using a common prime! (a unique 2028 bit DH group is recommended More Info)
Session Renegotiation: check Client Initiated Session Renegotiation Disabled
check Secure Session Renegotiation Supported
OpenSSL CCS Injection check Not Vulnerable More Info
Strict Transport Security warn Not Enabled More Info

We found 18 security issues on your server example.com

SSL Version 2 Enabled
Your Web Server is accepting SSL V2 connections, a weak protocol. For PCI compliance, and strong security you must disable this protocol on your web server.
More Information: http://foundeo.com/products/iis-weak-ssl-ciphers/
Robust Exception Information is Enabled
Robust Exception Information is enabled which leads to path disclosure and partial source code disclosure. This can also be triggered if you have a custom error handler that is disclosing too much information.
Security Hotfix APSB18-33 Not Installed
The security hotfix referenced in Adobe Security Bulletin APSB18-33 was not found to be installed on your server. This hotfix resolves 6 critical issues, one moderate and two important vulnerabilities . The issues are resolved in ColdFusion 11 Update 15+ ColdFusion 2016 Update 7+ and ColdFusion 2018 Update 1. For all security fixes to be effective you should also have Java 8 update 121 or greater installed.

Security Hotfix APSB19-14 Not Installed
The security hotfix referenced in Adobe Security Bulletin APSB19-14 was not found to be installed on your server. This hotfix resolves one critical (CVE-2019-7816) issue. The issues are resolved in ColdFusion 11 Update 18+ ColdFusion 2016 Update 10+ and ColdFusion 2018 Update 3+. For all security fixes to be effective you should also have Java 8 update 121 or greater installed.
More Information: https://helpx.adobe.com/security/products/coldfusion/apsb19-14.html

ColdFusion Administrator is Public
ColdFusion Administrator should be restricted by IP or blocked with Web Server password protection. Also consider requiring a SSL connection.
More Information: http://www.petefreitag.com/item/750.cfm
CFTOKEN should be set to use a UUID in the ColdFusion Administrator. Session ids may be very easy to guess if UUID's are not used.
RDS may be Enabled
RDS may be enabled on your server (due to a change in recent CF versions we can no longer detect if it is on or off, however we have detected that the RDSServlet URI is responding to requests). We recommened that you block the URI /CFIDE/main/ide.cfm and/or remove the Servlet Mapping in web.xml to prevent unnecessary access to the RDSServlet.
Certificate Signature Uses SHA1
Your SSL Certificate is signed using a SHA1 signature, which is considered weak. You may see security errors or warnings in Chrome.
More Information: http://googleonlinesecurity.blogspot.com/2014/09/gradually-sunsetting-sha-1.html
SSL Version 3 Enabled
Your Web Server is accepting SSL V3 connections, vulnerabile to the POODLE (CVE-2014-3566) attack. Consider disabling this protocol, which may impact old clients such as IE6 on Windows XP. Disabling SSLv3 may also impact server side HTTPS clients (that consume your web services or APIs), and potentially bots / crawlers. You can use our IIS SSL tool to disable SSLv3 on IIS: https://foundeo.com/products/iis-weak-ssl-ciphers/
More Information: https://poodle.io
The JVM is Running under Privileged User Account
The JVM process is running under a system administrative account (eg SYSTEM, Administrator, or root). ColdFusion should be running under an un-privileged user account.
Tomcat 9 Vulnerability
The version of Tomcat 9 you are running contains security vulnerabilities that are fixed in Tomcat Version 9.0.19 or greater. Adobe ColdFusion 2018 users should install the latest ColdFusion hotfix to upgrade Tomcat. As of ColdFusion 2018 Update 3, it will only update Tomcat to version 9.0.10. We expect that the next ColdFusion 2018 Update (hopefully Update 4) will patch Tomcat to version 9.0.19 or greater when it is released. Please reach out to Adobe Support for guidance or the status of the Tomcat update. Lucee users should update Tomcat manually.
More Information: https://tomcat.apache.org/security-9.html
The /cf_scripts/scripts directory is in default location.
Consider changing the default location of /cf_scripts/scripts/ or /cfscripts_2018/ by changing the value of the Default Script Src setting in the ColdFusion Administrator.
More Information: http://www.petefreitag.com/item/774.cfm
Session Cookies are not marked HTTPOnly
Using HTTPOnly cookies prevents the session cookies from being hijacked via a javascript XSS attack on modern browsers.
More Information: http://www.petefreitag.com/item/764.cfm
LogJam: DH Group Uses a common prime.
Your HTTPS server is configured to use a common 1024bit prime. Security researchers estimate that a nation-state could break encryption on servers with a common 1024 bit DH group prime.
More Information: https://weakdh.org/
LogJam: DH Group Smaller than 2048 Supported
Your server supports a DH Group Size smaller than 2048 bits. It is recommended to use a unique 2048-bit Diffie-Hellman group. Note that Java 1.7 and below cannot connect to servers (eg with CFHTTP) using a DH group size larger than 1024.
More Information: https://weakdh.org/
SSL Certificate Public Key Below 2048 Bits
Your SSL certificate public key is below 2048 bits, consider making a new certificate signing request (CSR) and rekey your certificate with 2048 bit key or larger.
SSL Certificate Expires Soon
Your SSL certificate will expire soon, please make sure you renew it.

Please note, this tool is not able to test for all potential security issues that may exist.
