Vulnerability Scan Summary
Tests for IIS5 .printer ISAPI filter

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

Remote Web server supports Internet Printing Protocol

Description :

IIS 5 has support for the Internet Printing Protocol(IPP), which is
enabled in a default install. The protocol is implemented in IIS5 as an
ISAPI extension. At least one security problem (a buffer overflow)
has been found with that extension in the past, so we recommend
you disable it if you do not use this functionality.

Solution :

To unmap the .printer extension:
1.Open Internet Services Manager.
2.Right-click the Web server choose Properties from the context menu.
3.Master Properties
4.Select WWW Service -> Edit -> HomeDirectory -> Configuration
and remove the reference to .printer from the list.
