Oracle 9iAS Jsp Source File Reading

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Test for Oracle 9iAS JSP Source File Reading

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

In a default installation of Oracle 9iAS it is possible to read the source of
JSP files. When a JSP is requested it is compiled 'on the fly' and the
resulting HTML page is returned to the user. Oracle 9iAS uses a folder to hold
the intermediate files during compilation. These files are created in the same
folder in which the .JSP page resides. Hence, it is possible to access the
.java and compiled .class files for a given JSP page.

Solution:

Edit httpd.conf to dispermit access to the _pages folder.
