The remote web server contains a 'robots.txt' file.
The remote host contains a file named 'robots.txt' that is intended to
prevent web 'robots' from visiting certain directories in a website for
maintenance or indexing purposes. A malicious user may also be able to
use the contents of this file to learn of sensitive documents or
directories on the affected site and either retrieve them directly or
target them for other attacks.

Review the contents of the site's robots.txt file, use Robots META tags
instead of entries in the robots.txt file, and/or adjust the web
