Web Server Load Balancer Detection

Low Nessus Plugin ID 12224


The remote web server is load-balanced.


The remote web server seems to be running in conjunction with several others behind a load balancer. Knowing that there are multiple systems behind a service could be useful to an attacker as the underlying hosts may be running different operating systems, patchlevels, etc.


Update the web configuration to hide information disclosure.
