Apache Directory Listing

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks to see if Apache will provide a directory listing

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

By making a request to the Apache web server ending in '?M=A' it is sometimes possible to obtain a
directory listing even if an index.html file is present.

It appears that it is possible to retrieve a directory listing from the root of the Apache
web server being tested. However, this could be because there is no 'index.html' or similar
default file present.

Solution:

Unless it is required, turn off Indexing by making the appropriate changes to your
httpd.conf file.

Network Security Threat Level: Low
