The list_directory function in Lib/SimpleHTTPServer.py in
SimpleHTTPServer in Python before 2.5.6c1, 2.6.x before 2.6.7 rc2, and
2.7.x before 2.7.2 does not place a charset parameter in the
Content-Type HTTP header, which makes it easier for remote attackers
to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks against Internet
Explorer 7 via UTF-7 encoding.
