Microsoft IIS Cookie information disclosure

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote web server is affected by an information disclosure

Description :

The remote host is running Microsoft IIS with what appears to be a
a vulnerable disclosure of cookie usage. That is, when sent a
Cookie with the '=' character, Microsoft IIS will either respond
with an error (if actually processing the cookie via a specific
asp page) or disclose information of the .inc file used. This can
be used to map applications which are processing cookies.
