Apache on Windows mod_alias URL Validation Canonicalization CGI Source Information Disclosure

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

The version of Apache installed on the remote Windows host can be
tricked into disclosing the source of its CGI scripts because of a
configuration issue. Specifically, if the CGI directory is located
within the document root, then requests that alter the case of the
directory name will bypass the mod_cgi cgi-script handler and be
treated as requests for ordinary files.

Solution :

Reconfigure Apache so that the scripts directory is located outside
of the document root.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.3
