Microsoft .NET Custom Errors Not Set

medium Nessus Plugin ID 24244
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote ASP.NET web server does not have custom errors set


The remote ASP.NET web server is configured to show verbose error messages, which might lead to the disclosure of potentially sensitive information about the remote installation (such as the path under which the remote web server resides) or about the remote ASP.NET applications.


Configure the server so that the option 'customErrors mode' is set to 'On' instead of 'Off'
