Title:IIS perl.exe problem

It was possible to obtain the physical location of a
virtual web directory of this host by issuing the command :

GET /scripts/no-such-file.pl HTTP/1.0

An attacker may use this flaw to gain more information about the remote
host, and hence make more focused attacks.

Solution : Use perlis.dll instead of perl.exe.
Risk factor : Low
