IIST-SI-000215 - Mappings to unused and vulnerable scripts on the IIS 10.0 website must be removed.

Warning! Audit Deprecated

This audit has been deprecated and will be removed in a future update.

IIS 10.0 will either allow or deny script execution based on file extension. The ability to control script execution is controlled through two features with IIS 10.0, Request Filtering and Handler Mappings.

For Handler Mappings, the ISSO must document and approve all allowable file extensions the website allows (white list) and denies (black list). The white list and black list will be compared to the Handler Mappings in IIS 8. Handler Mappings at the site level take precedence over Handler Mappings at the server level.

NOTE: Nessus has not performed this check. Please review the benchmark to ensure target compliance.


Open the IIS 10.0 Manager.

Click the site name under review.

Double-click 'Handler Mappings'.

Remove any script file extensions listed on the black list that are enabled.

Select 'Apply' from the 'Actions' pane.
