Apache Multiviews Arbitrary Directory Listing

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • The Apache web server running on the remote host is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by sending a crafted request, to display a listing of a remote directory, even if a valid index file exists in the directory.

  • Ports: tcp/80, tcp/8088

  • Nessus was able to exploit the issue using the following request :
    This produced the following truncated output (limited to 10 lines) :
    ------------------------------ snip ------------------------------
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2 Final//EN">
    <title>Index of /</title>
    <h1>Index of /</h1>
    <tr><th valign="top"><img src="/icons/blank.gif" alt="[ICO]"></th><th><a href="?C=N;O=D">Name</a></th><th><a href="?C=M;O=A">Last modified</a></th><th><a href="?C=S;O=A">Size</a></th><th><a href="?C=D;O=A">Description</a></th></tr>
    <tr><th colspan="5"><hr></th></tr>
