Description:

We have noticed that by configuring Apache for Web Agent, SiteMinder adds the following options in the httpd.conf.

Indexes MultiViews

to the directories section.

Example:

 Alias /siteminderagent/pwcgi/ "/opt/CA/webagent/pw/"   
   <Directory "/opt/CA/webagent/pw/">   
     Options Indexes MultiViews ExecCGI   
   AllowOverride None   
     Order allow,deny   
   Allow from all   
 </Directory> 

Those are recognized as a weakness in the security of the Apache server. Could I disable both safely as

-Indexes -MultiViews

in my httpd.conf ?

Solution:

Yes. You can disable them. They won't harm the behavior of the Web Agent.
