March 2012 Security Hot-Fix updated for ColdFusion 801

A bug was reported for ColdFusion 801 hot-fix, where java.lang.NoSuchMethodError exception was being thrown while using cffile upload.
We have updated the hotfix files of ColdFusion 801 to include the fix for the above issue. Users who have already applied the hotfix for ColdFusion 801 can just update the hotfix jar.

Some tips for successfully installing hot-fix -

Refer to tech note  notes section 5 and 6 to know how this can be configured.
