Apache Mixed Platform AddType Directive Information Disclosure

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 17695

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.
