Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)

On hostings where missing "Options -Indexes" (Apache) index.php file with "Silence is golden." could be an option or as discussed in #4759 as it will work also on NGINX.

While by default it's not a security issue, however, may lead to a discovery of private/non-for-public files.

Directories:
/wp-includes/
/wp-content/uploads/
/wp-content/languages/ (I know it's not by default here)
