Title:/doc/packages directory browsable ?
Summary:Is /doc/packages browseable ?
The /doc/packages directory is browsable.
The content of this directory gives to an attacker instant
knowledge about the versions of the packages installed
on this host, and will help him to focus his attack.

Solution : Use access restrictions for the /doc directory.
If you use Apache you might use this in your access.conf:

AllowOverride None
order deny,allow
deny from all
allow from localhost

Risk factor : High
