IIS Tilde Enumeration (re)Exploited

  • Micah Hoffman
  • Wednesday, March 19th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

You have just performed a vulnerability scan of a system or maybe you received someone else's scan results. Noticing several low risk vulnerabilities, you wonder, "Could I exploit one of these lows and discover it is really a high risk issue?" In penetration tests and vulnerability scans, low risk issues sometimes do not get the scrutiny and follow-up testing that they deserve.

We'll examine the IIS Tilde Enumeration vulnerability, review current methods of exploitation and then examine a new tool, tilde_enum, that can help you turn this low risk vulnerability into a high!


Micah Hoffman has been working in the information field for over 15 years supporting federal government, commercial and internal customers in their searches to discover and quantify information security weaknesses within their organizations. He leverages years of hands-on, real-world penetration testing and incident response experience to provide unique solutions to his customers.
