Microsoft FrontPage Extensions Check

medium Nessus Plugin ID 10077
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


FrontPage extensions are enabled.


The remote web server appears to be running with the FrontPage extensions.

FrontPage allows remote web developers and administrators to modify web content from a remote location. While this is a fairly typical scenario on an internal local area network, the FrontPage extensions should not be available to anonymous users via the Internet (or any other untrusted 3rd party network).
