Fix Recommendation

If the CGI, the cgi-bin, or the cgi-shl directories can be accessed via FTP by any group or user that does not require access, remove permissions to such directories for all but the web administrators and the SAs. Ensure that any such access employs an encrypted connection.

Check Contents

Locate the directories containing the CGI scripts. These directories should be language-specific (e.g., PERL, ASP, JS, JSP, etc.).

Right-click on the web content directory and the related CGI directories. On the Properties tab, examine the access rights for the CGI, cgi-bin, or cgi-shl directories.

Anonymous FTP users must not have access to these directories.

If the CGI, the cgi-bin, or the cgi-shl directories can be accessed by any group that does not require access, this is a finding.
