Apache for Windows CGI Source Code Disclosure Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to read source of print-env.pl with Apache for Windows

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server is affected by an information disclosure issue.

Description :

The version of Apache for Windows installed on the remote host can be
tricked into disclosing the source of its CGI scripts because of a
configuration issue. Specifically, if the CGI directory is located
within the document root, then requests that alter the case of the
directory name will bypass the mod_cgi cgi-script handler and be
treated as requests for ordinary files.

Solution :

Reconfigure Apache so that the scripts directory is located outside of
the document root.

Network Security Threat Level:

Low / CVSS Base Score : 2
