Apache Multiviews Arbitrary Directory Listing

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 10704


The remote web server is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.


The Apache web server running on the remote host is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by sending a crafted request, to display a listing of a remote directory, even if a valid index file exists in the directory.


Upgrade to Apache version 1.3.22 or later. Alternatively, as a workaround, disable Multiviews.
