No 404 check Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks if the remote webserver issues 404 errors
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
Remote web server does not reply with 404 error code.
The remote web server is configured in that it does not return '404 Not Found'
error codes when a non-existent file is requested, perhaps returning a site
map, search page or authentication page instead.
Nessus enabled some counter measures for that, however they might be
insufficient. If a great number of security holes are produced for this port,
they might not all be accurate.
