Identified by type="Status", this handler reports on the operational status of the SP software and some configuration options. The information is returned in the form of a simple XML document, suitable for processing with a style sheet

Some of the information returned might be considered confidential by some deployers, so limiting access may be warranted. On Version 2.4 and above, the handler now includes some basic operating system and platform information, which could be used to aid an attackerl.
