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
vulnerability.

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
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)
CVSS Temporal Score : 4.3
(CVSS2#E:H/RL:OF/RC:C)
Public Exploit Available : true
