Description

Unrestricted WebDAV requests expose a server to defacements and denial of service attacks. If the PUT method can be used by any unauthenticated remote user, arbitrary web pages can be inserted into the web root, or the disk can be filled with meaningless data; if the DELETE method is unprotected, then any file in a DAV-enabled directory can be removed at will.
