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's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 3.4


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


The remote host appears to be running a version of Apache 2.0.x prior to 2.0.43. It is, therefore, affected by an information disclosure vulnerability. An attacker can exploit this vulnerability by making a POST request to files in a folder with both WebDAV and CGI enabled.

*** Note that Nessus solely relied on the version number
*** of the remote server to issue this warning. This might
*** be a false positive.


Upgrade to Apache web server version 2.0.43 or later.
