This plugin fingerprints the remote web server and tries to determine the Operating System family (Windows, Unix, etc.). The fingerprinting is (at this moment) really trivial, because it only uses one technique: windows path separator in the URL. For example, if the input URL is http://host.tld/abc/def.html then the plugin verifies if the response for that resource and the http://host.tld/abc\def.html is the same; which indicates that the server is running Windows.
