Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Microsoft IIS Cookie information disclosure

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is running Microsoft IIS with what appears to be
a vulnerable disclosure of cookie usage. That is, when sent a
Cookie with the '=' character, Microsoft IIS will either respond
with an error (if actually processing the cookie via a specific
asp page) or disclose information of the .inc file used. This can
be used to map applications which are processing cookies.

Solution : change default error pages
