Test ID:10503
Category:CGI abuses
Title:Reading CGI script sources using /cgi-bin-sdb

The directory /cgi-bin-sdb is an Alias of
/cgi-bin - most SuSE systems are configured that

This setting allows an attacker to obtain the source
code of the installed CGI scripts on this host. This is
dangerous as it gives an attacker valuable information
about the setup of this host, or perhaps usernames and
passwords if they are hardcoded into the CGI scripts.

Solution : In httpd.conf, change the directive:
Alias /cgi-bin-sdb/ /usr/local/httpd/cgi-bin/
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin-sdb/ /usr/local/httpd/cgi-bin/
Risk factor : High
