RE: nikto scan results

hello Juan,
nikto results are self explanatory , as disclosed by the scanner , the IIS
webserver is vulnerable to XSS vulnerability.
to check for the false alarms, you can manually test the XSS vulnerability
on places where user input is asked.
There is enough material on NET on how to do XSS..
also verify whether you have applied the patches as mentioned in the below
advisories..
the IDs mentioned (e.g MS02-018) are of various advisories, like CERT ,
Microsoft Security Bulletins, etc ..

hope this helps.
