Description

By submitting a specific url to the web server ("http://hosts.any/doc/packages/") , any user from any host may obtain a list of packages installed on a S.u.S.E 6.3 or 6.4 system. This problem is due to a configuration in the Apache httpd.conf supplied with S.u.S.E that permits anyone to request documents from this webroot subdirectory. The end result is that attackers will know what packages the victim has installed, which can assist in executing more complicated attacks.

Solution(s)

  • http-iis-0024

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.
