Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The executables 'redirect.exe' and/or 'changepw.exe' exist on this webserver.
Some versions of these files are vulnerable to remote exploit.

A possible hacker can use this hole to gain access to confidential data
or escalate their rights on the web server.

*** As Nessus solely relied on the existence of the redirect.exe or changepw.exe files,
*** this might be a false positive

Solution : remove them from cgi-bin or scripts folder.
