lighttpd on Windows < 1.4.10a Crafted Filename Request Script Source Disclosure
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 21155
SynopsisThe remote web server is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its banner, the version of lighttpd running on the remote Windows host is prior to 1.4.10a. It is, therefore, affected by an information disclosure vulnerability due to a failure to properly validate filename extensions in URLs. A remote attacker can exploit this issue, via specially crafted requests with dot and space characters, to disclose the source of scripts hosted by the affected application.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to lighttpd for Windows version 1.4.10a or later.
