    I ran Nessus vulnerabilily scanner to get a report of one my cPanel servers and got this:

    Informational http (80/tcp)

    Directory index found at /sys_cpanel/css/
    Directory index found at /sys_cpanel/images/
    Directory index found at /sys_cpanel/

    Nessus ID : 10662
    ----------------------------------
    The 10662 Nessus plugin information:

    Web mirroring
    Family Web Servers
    Nessus Plugin ID 10662


    Description:

    This script makes a mirror of the remote web site(s)
    and extracts the list of CGIs that are used by the remote
    host.


    So, is this a real problem, a bug in my system.. i don't understand, i don't see any risk in those directories.. can anybody explain this ?

    thkz!

    Go on, have a guess
    Just a typical false-positive from such scanning software. It does say it's an Informational thing.
