As a security best practice, ensure that a user cannot browse through a directory because it can increase the risk of exposure to directory traversal attacks.


  • Verify that web directory browsing is deactivated for all directories.
    1. Open the /etc/httpd/httpd.conf and /usr/lib/vmware-vcopssuite/utilities/conf/vcops-apache.conf files in a text editor.
    2. Verify that for each <Directory> listing, the option called Indexes for the relevant tag is omitted from the Options line.
