Apache Mixed Platform AddType Directive Information Disclosure

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


Synopsis :

The remote Apache server is vulnerable to an information disclosure
attack.

Description :

The remote host appears to be running Apache. When Apache runs on a
Unix host with a document root on a Windows SMB share, remote,
unauthenticated attackers could obtain the unprocessed contents of the
directory. For example, requesting a PHP file with a trailing
backslash could display the file's source instead of executing it.

Solution :

Ensure that the document root is not located on a Windows SMB
share.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.3
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)
CVSS Temporal Score : 3.9
