It is possible to detect short names of files and directories which have an 8.3 file naming scheme equivalent in Windows
by using some vectors in several versions of Microsoft IIS. For instance, it is possible to detect all short-names of ".aspx"
files as they have 4 letters in their extensions. This can be a major issue especially for the .Net websites which are
vulnerable to direct URL access as an attacker can find important files and folders that they are not normally visible.
