Directory listing through WebDAV

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks the presence of WebDAV

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The WebDAV module can be used to obtain a listing of the
remote web server directories even if they have a default
page such as index.html.

This permits a possible hacker to gain valuable information about the
directory structure of the remote host and could reveal the
existence of files which are not intended to be visible.

Solution : disable the WebDAV module, or restrict its access to
authenticated and trusted clients.
