So i stumbled to this info page @ wikipedia:



Current Method Also Known As (Return Flushing, RE Exploit) Due to most vulnerabilities being recently patched as such sites as http://milw0rm.com have been released publically, most attackers have been forced to develop exploits of their own. One such method is return flushing, or re'ing. This attempt consist of a parallel paradox. On the attackers computer, the request points to a file that does exist in the directory specified. Usually the attacker specially configures his or her own directories so they are unique and are rarely affiliated with the server's directories. The file usually included in the get request is cmd.exe, or other shell applications. The failed get request results in a resolvement, bypassing the typical 404 error and/or 403 error pages, and resolves the request to the base of the domain/server, revealing all the content resideing within the domain/server. No matter what utility/environment is being utilized the domain/server. This accounts for several environments such as Apache.

Can someone explain me details, so I can understand? Rolling Eyes
