The remote web server is vulnerable to an information disclosure
When the remote web server is issued a request with a lower-case
'get', it will return a directory listing even if a default page such
as index.html is present.
For example :
get / HTTP/1.0
will return a listing of the root directory.
This allows an attacker to gain valuable information about the
directory structure of the remote host and could reveal the presence
of files that are not intended to be visible.
Upgrade the server to the latest version.
Risk factor :
Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
CVSS Temporal Score : 4.1
Public Exploit Available : true
Family: Web Servers
