The remote web server is affected by a password policy bypass
Microsoft IIS installs the 'aexp2.htr', 'aexp2b.htr', 'aexp3.htr', or
'aexp4.htr' files in the '/iisadmpwd' directory by default. These
fiels can be used by an attacker to brute-force a valid
username/password. A valid user may also use it to change his password
on a locked account, bypassing password policy.
