Directory Listing (Apache)

Severity: Information

The web server responded with a list of files located in the target directory.

An attacker can see the files located in the directory and could potentially access files which disclose sensitive information.
Actions To Take#
  1. Change your server configuration file. A recommended configuration for the requested directory should be in the following format:
    <Directory /{YOUR DIRECTORY}>
    	Options FollowSymLinks
    Remove the Indexes option from configuration. Do not forget to remove MultiViews as well.
  2. Configure the web server to disallow directory listing requests.
  3. Ensure that the latest security patches have been applied to the web server and the current stable version of the software is in use.
