MacOS X Finder reveals contents of Apache Web files

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
MacOS X Finder reveals contents of Apache Web files

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

MacOS X creates a hidden file, '.FBCIndex' in each directory that has been
viewed with the Finder. This file contains the content of the files present
in the directory, giving a possible hacker information on the HTML tags, JavaScript,
passwords, or any other sensitive word used inside those files.

Solution: Use a directive in httpd.conf to restrict access to
'hidden' files:


Order permit, deny
Deny from all


And restart Apache.
