MyWebServer invalid directory path could disclose path to Web root directory
|mywebserver-invalid-path-disclosure (9862)||Low Risk|
MyWebServer could allow a remote attacker to obtain the full path to the Web root directory. If a remote attacker submits a specially-crafted URL request with an invalid directory path, the attacker would cause the Web server to return an error message that could contain the full path to the Web root directory. An attacker could use this information to prepare for further attacks against the affected server.
No remedy available as of September 1, 2014.
