Hidden Directory Detected issue

May 1 Reputation point

Hi MS support,

Our Sharepoint site (SP2013) is undergoing security vulnerabilities scan and we have landed on a "Hidden Directory Detected Issue" that could not be resolved.

We had updated the <system.webServer> node in web.config file as follows:
<httpErrors errorMode="Custom">
<error statusCode="403" subStatusCode="14" path="/error.aspx" responseMode="ExecuteURL" />

However the re-scan results still had the "Hidden Directory Detected Issue" reflected. May I check how we can resolve this issue?

It will be great if any official article from Microsoft can help.

Thank you,
