Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Test Microsoft IIS Source Fragment Disclosure

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Microsoft IIS 4.0 and 5.0 can be made to disclose
fragments of source code which should otherwise be
inaccessible. This is done by appending +.htr to a
request for a known .asp (or .asa, .ini, etc) file.

Solution : .htr script mappings should be removed if not required.

- open Internet Services Manager
- right click on the web server and select properties
- select WWW service | Edit | Home Directory | Configuration
- remove the application mappings reference to .htr

If .htr functionality is required, install the relevant patches
from Microsoft (MS01-004)
