Sid: 
119-2

-- 
Summary: 
This event is generated when the pre-processor http_inspect
detects network traffic that may constitute an attack.

-- 
Impact: 
Unknown. This may be an attempt to evade an IDS.

--
Detailed Information:
This event is generated when double encoded characters are detected in
web traffic. This is abnormal behavior and may be an indicator of a
possible attack against a vulnerable system.

This may also be an attempt to evade IDS.

--
Affected Systems:
	Microsoft IIS Servers.

--
Attack Scenarios: 
An attacker might double encode the request to the web server, this may
then evade an IDS monitoring traffic and could then launch a successful
attack without being detected.

-- 
Ease of Attack: 
Simple. Exploits exist.

-- 

False Positives:
None Known.

--
False Negatives:
None Known.

-- 

Corrective Action:
Check the target host for signs of compromise.

Apply any appropriate vendor supplied patches.

Upgrade to the latest non-affected version of the software

Use Apache.
