Hi all,  
  
I recently have downloaded a trial version of Fasttrack server (3.01) for NT  
  
According to Netscape documentation:  
  
----8<------------------------8<-------------------8<---  
Specifying index filenames  
  
If a document name is not specified in the URL,  
and the server finds a file with this name in a  
document directory, it assumes that file is the  
index file. The server automatically displays this  
file when no specific file is requested. The defaults  
are index.html and home.html. If more than  
one name is specified, the server looks in the  
order in which the names you specified appear  
until one is found. For example, if your index  
filenames are index.html, home.html, the  
server first looks for index.html, and if the  
server doesn't find it, then the server looks for  
home.html.  
  
------8<--------------8<---------------8<--------------------  
  
Well, having this configuration:  
  
Index Filenames: index.html  
  
Directory indexing: fancy or simple  
  
and HAVING a index.html file in root directory  
  
if you telnet to default httpd port and type:  
  
get / (lowercase)  
  
You will get a directory listing of the root directory.  
  
Workaround: Disable directory listing.  
  
Netscape has been notified.

Hi,  
  
Keith R. Jarvis has found the same issue in  
http://geek-girl.com/bugtraq/1998_1/0092.html  
  
After more than one year Netscape don´t warm their customers about this  
security flaw.  
  
In http://www.netscape.com/security/notes/index.html, are the "current and  
previous security notes [...] concerning the security of our client, server,  
and development software".  
  
No comment :(

This same thing works on FastTrack 3.5 for Netware.  
You can also put any directory name after the / to see what's in the lower directories.
