Apache Multiviews Arbitrary Directory Listing

medium Nessus Plugin ID 10704
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.

Synopsis

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

Description

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

Solution

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