Description

Microsoft IIS and other NT webservers contain a vulnerability that allows remote users to obtain the source code for an ASP file. When one appends ::$DATA to an asp being requested, the ASP source will be returned, instead of executing the ASP.

For example:

http://xyz/myasp.asp::$DATA

will return the source of myasp.asp, instead of executing it.

Solution(s)

  • install-microsoft-patch-3dfc7209b7223395a2fdabb1c75d5de7
  • install-microsoft-patch-b62d497e9e5968f31c6f6eb0cd7d5fe0

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
