The bug is really simple. If the attacker insert an unicode space (%20)
after the script file, the server think that the file requested is not a
cgi script and for this it shown the source; this is an example:
And the result is the source of "remote_login.pl".
This also appears to be a bug in the web server shipped with 3.5. While
this worked as expected for the NT version, I was not able to duplicate
the problem with the Solaris or Linux versions.
