WebLogic Encoded Request Forced Directory Listing

This script is Copyright (C) 2001-2015 StrongHoldNet


Synopsis :

It is possible to obtain the list of the contents of arbitrary
directories hosted on the remote server.

Description :

Requesting a URL with '%00', '%2e', '%2f' or '%5c' appended to it
makes some WebLogic servers dump the listing of the page directory,
thus showing potentially sensitive files.

An attacker may also use this flaw to view the source code of JSP
files, or other dynamic content.
