Subject: [Axis2] : Application Error message in Acunetix Report


Hi Team,


We scanned the axis2 version 1.7.6 with Acunetix to find security threats. Acunetix reported an issue "Application Error Message". We are getting response code 500 with error message "Internal Server Error".

We tried replacing  "axis2.war\axis2-web\Error\error500.jsp" with custom jsp/html file and updated the same in web.xml at location "axis2.war\WEB-INF" but it did not solve our problem. Please help us removing this from Acunetix report. For your reference snippet  of Acunetix report is given below.
