Microsoft IIS Cookie information disclosure

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
