Attempts to read the source of a jsp page

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

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

Description :

It is possible to make the remote web server disclose the source code
of its JSP pages by requesting the pages with a non-existing hostname
in the HTTP 'Host' header request when WebSphere Application is
sharing the document root of the web server. A possible hacker may use this
flaw to get the source code of your CGIs and possibly to obtain
passwords and other relevant information about this host.
