Description
IIS 10.0 will either allow or deny script execution based on file extension. The ability to control script execution is controlled through two features with IIS 10.0, Request Filtering and Handler Mappings. For Request Filtering, the ISSO must document and approve all allowable file extensions the website allows (white list) and denies (black list) by the website. The white list and black list will be compared to the Request Filtering in IIS 10.0. Request Filtering at the site level take precedence over Request Filtering at the server level.
