Vulnerability Assessment Details

Netscape FastTrack 'get'

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
'get / ' gives a directory listing

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
When the remote web server is
issued a request with a lower-case 'get', it will return
a directory listing even if a default page such as index.html is
present.

Example :

get / HTTP/1.0

Will return a listing of the root directory.

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 : Upgrade your server to the latest version.
