Apache HTTPD : ETag Inode Information Leakage

Apache HTTPD : ETag Inode Information Leakage

This is an error that occurs during PCI scans. To remediate it, disable the ETag feature in your Apache configuration file.

Add FileETag None to /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and restart your Apache server :

echo 'FileETag None' >> /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

service httpd restart

Check if the ETag information are present in the http headers sent by your Apache server  :

curl -I https://your_server_name/ -k
