The remote installation of IIS leaks a private IP address through the
WebDAV interface. This may expose internal IP addresses that are
usually hidden or masked behind a Network Address Translation (NAT)
Firewall or proxy server.
This is typical of IIS installations that are not configured properly
please suggest to resolve this risk.

Well I don't know specifically for IIS 7, but earlier versions used to have the following workaround:

adsutil.vbs set w3svc/UseHostName True

Bear in mind though that I've heard reports of it breaking OWA.

if we disable webdav then it will resolve the issue or not?
