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: 4.2

Synopsis

The remote Apache server is vulnerable to an information disclosure attack.

Description

The 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.

Solution

Ensure that the document root is not located on a Windows SMB share.
