lighttpd Status Module Remote Information Disclosure

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote web server is affected by an information disclosure

Description :

The installation of lighttpd on the remote host allows unauthenticated
access to URLs associated with the Status module (mod_status), at
least from the Nessus server. Mod_status reports information about
how the web server is configured and its usage, and it may prove
useful to an attacker seeking to attack the server or host.

Solution :

Reconfigure lighttpd to require authentication for the affected
URL(s), restrict access to them by IP address, or disable the Status
module itself.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
