New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 2.2


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.

For Apache web server later than 1.3.22, review listing directory configuration to avoid disclosing sensitive information


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