ColdFusion MX customers who have not altered their web
server configuration after installing ColdFusion need not
take any action. ColdFusion MX customers on Unix platforms
who have manually configured a web server using the
instructions in "Installing ColdFusion MX," Chapter 2,
"Configuring web servers" should repeat the operation using
the -map switch to be sure that their web server does not
process ColdFusion files as static files.

Macromedia is committed to addressing security issues
and providing customers with the information on how they

appropriately address and communicate the issue.
