Private IP address Leaked using the PROPFIND method

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for private IP addresses in PROPFIND response

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote web server leaks a private IP address through the WebDAV interface. If this
web server is behind a Network Address Translation (NAT) firewall or proxy server, then
the internal IP addressing scheme has been leaked.

This is typical of IIS 5.0 installations that are not configured properly.
