Apache Mixed Platform AddType Directive Information Disclosure
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 17695
SynopsisThe remote Apache server is vulnerable to an information disclosure attack.
DescriptionThe remote host appears to be running Apache. When Apache runs on a Unix host with a document root on a Windows SMB share, remote, unauthenticated attackers could obtain the unprocessed contents of the directory. For example, requesting a PHP file with a trailing backslash could display the file's source instead of executing it.
SolutionEnsure that the document root is not located on a Windows SMB share.
