Web Server No 404 Error Code Check

info Nessus Plugin ID 10386


The remote web server does not return 404 error codes.


The remote web server is configured such that it does not return '404 Not Found' error codes when a nonexistent file is requested, perhaps returning instead a site map, search page or authentication page.

Nessus has enabled some counter measures for this. However, they might be insufficient. If a great number of security holes are produced for this port, they might not all be accurate.
