I am wondering if there is a safer way to use ColdFusion CFFILE to upload files to Of course, you only perform the image tests if the file uploaded is an image. You may want to use a third party tool like Alagad Image CFC or ColdFusion 8’s built in image support to not only confirm that the file is indeed. On UNIX systems should also restrict access to the uploaded file by specifying the mode attribute, preferably so that only the ColdFusion process can read.

Use to limit what types of files will be accepted. Filename of the file actually saved on the server. I’m fairly certain you’ll need to upload the file first. If omitted, the file’s attributes are maintained.
cffile action = “upload”
My Gravatar is enabled via my Hotmail address – any chance you’ll allow those mail-extensions in the future? If two cffile tags execute, the results of the second overwrite the first, unless you have specified a different result variable in the result attribute.
For this reason you need to ensure that cffile. The file status parameters can be used anywhere other ColdFusion parameters can be used.
Hi, I’ve seen comments about checking for a double file extensions. They should always be placed in a temporary location, generally the ColdFusion temporary directory from GetTempDirectory.
I also found another posting in this forum that do not suggest on,y use of CF “accept” attribute. Indicates Yes or No whether or not the uploaded file was renamed to avoid a name conflict. The accept attribute gives a terrible false sense of security.
Description Copies a file to a directory on the server. You vffile me to it. If possible upload content to a server other than the application server, a server that only serves static content ulload example Amazon S3. He was responsible for cfffile and maintaining Unofficial Updater 2 which makes patching ColdFusion 8 and 9 significantly easier before the Hotfix installer was introduced in ColdFusion But using a combination of checks you can be reasonably that most files uploaded are of the correct type.
Extending the sandbox design: Always upload to a temp directory outside of the Web Root Suppose I ran the same hack above with cfhttp but you now have code in place to delete the file if the extension is incorrect.
The status parameters use the cffile prefix; for example, cffile.
If you don’t want to trust the “accept” attribute, I would suggest allowing the user to upload the file and then checking the mime type of the uploaded file using the cffile. And it’s late, so I’m too tired to clean the grammar. The MIME type was determined by the client so it’s safer to check the extension anyway.
Suppose I ran the same hack above with cfhttp but you now have code in place to delete the file if the extension is incorrect. DateLastAccessed Date and time the uploaded file was last accessed. Just so I’m clear: In previous versions of ColdFusion, the mime type content-type and content-subtype were based upon what the client told ColdFusion the file is, not the actual contents.
Now CFMX code can scan the backend directory and authorize what the user can see. If this value is set to true, file upload continues evern after encountering an upload error.
