Robotx.txt File Containing Sensitive Information Detected

Netsparker detected a Robots.txt file with potentially sensitive content.

Impact

Depending on the content of the file, an attacker might discover hidden directories. Ensure you have nothing sensitive exposed within this folder, such as the path of the administration panel.

Remedy

If disallowed paths are sensitive, do not write them in the robots.txt, and ensure they are correctly protected by means of authentication.
