Fix Recommendation

Add the following to all enabled Directory directives except root:

Order allow,deny
<LimitExcept GET POST OPTIONS>
Deny from all
</LimitExcept>

Check Contents

Locate the Apache httpd.conf file.

Open the httpd.conf file with an editor such as notepad, and search for the following uncommented directive: Directory

For every enabled Directory directive (except root), ensure the following entry exists:

Order allow,deny

<LimitExcept GET POST OPTIONS>
Deny from all
</LimitExcept>

If the statement above is found in the root directory statement (i.e. <Directory />), this is a finding. If the statement above is found enabled but without the appropriate LimitExcept or Order statement, this is a finding. If the statement is not found at all inside an enabled Directory directive, this is a finding.

Note: If the LimitExcept statement above is operationally limiting. This should be explicitly documented with the Web Manager, at which point this can be considered not a finding.
