Apache Multiviews Feature Arbitrary Directory Listing

This script is Copyright (C) 2001-2012 Matt Moore

Synopsis :

The remote web server is affected by an information disclosure

Description :

By making a request to the Apache web server ending in '?M=A' it is
sometimes possible to obtain a directory listing even if an
index.html file is present.

It appears that it is possible to retrieve a directory listing from
the root of the Apache web server being tested. However, this could
be because there is no 'index.html' or similar default file present.

Solution :

Unless it is required, turn off Indexing by making the appropriate
changes to your httpd.conf file.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
CVSS Temporal Score : 4.3
Public Exploit Available : true

Family: Web Servers
