Microsoft has posted a fix for a security bug in Internet Information Server 3.0 and 4.0 that was revealed last week. The bug allows Web surfers to access the source code of Active Server Page (ASP) files by appending the string "::$DATA" to the end of an ASP URL. ASP files are IIS server-side files that contain scripting code, and they can contain system passwords, which a hacker could then access. The bug also affects other file types, including SHTML and Perl files. The fixes are available at the Microsoft FTP site (ftp.microsoft.com/bussys/IIS/iis-public/fixes/usa/security/).
