Multiple Web Server Encoded Space (%20) Request ASP Source Disclosure

This script is Copyright (C) 2002-2011 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote web server is affected by an information disclosure
vulnerability.

Description :

It appears possible to get the source code of the remote ASP scripts
by appending a '%20' to the request.

ASP source code usually contains sensitive information such as logins
and passwords.

This has been reported in Simple HTTPD (shttpd), Mono XSP for ASP.NET
and vWebServer. This type of request may affect other web servers as
well.
